See the latest allocation policy draft -- it attempts to do that.
Comments on the draft would be welcome, see:

The @Home allocation was done outside of normal registry procedures by
the IANA directly.  InterNIC should not be held responsible for that

What happens if a substantial part of the Class A space is allocated outside
of IANA (Jon Postel) as well as the InterNIC...???

Does God get to handle those allocations...??? about Clinton or Dole...???
