If one were to ignore layer 9 politics, it could be argued the
authority/delegation models between DNS and address space are quite
IANA maintains "." ("dig @ns.iana.org . axfr") and delegates portions
of the namespace to top-level domain registries
Top-level domain registries delegate parts of their namespaces to
second-level domain registries (typically end users)
IANA maintains the top-level address registry (http://www.iana.org/assignments/ipv4-address-space/
assignments) and delegates portions of the address space to RIRs.
RIRs delegate parts of their address space to LIRs/ISPs/end users.
Of course, ignoring layer 9 politics can be a bit challenging.
