The only people who claim ICANN has a goal of "running the Internet" are 
people outside of ICANN.  ICANN, itself, has a far more modest and mundane 

That you would insist that an organization with non-critical hosts incur 
the cost of an Akamai service, or the like, rather than simply enjoy basic 
co-location with an ISP that has a good track record, bespeaks of the 
mission creep people keep trying to impose on ICANN.
