Indirectly they're responsible for assignment of IP address, enterprise
numbers, domain names etc. Of course you're not going to get very far with
that approach. 

My point was there isn't really an authority to enforce rules on ISPs when
it comes to how they manage their DNS servers. Government and IANA
won't be interested in fielding such complaints. Shining a flash light
on the problem publicly is going to be the best best.
