My mind keeps going to vulture, but sure...

what provides ICANN with immunity from anti-trust laws?

My first instinct would be to note the diversity of ccTLDs, some of which
have been business-modeled to directly compete with ICANN's generics.

To me it's always been one of the dirty little secrets of the domain world
that .co has an entirely different governance / policy model compared to
.com... yet neither the public nor most registrants even know a difference
exists (let alone know what the differences are). Ditto .ly, .me, .nu,
