ICANN can't require the RIRs do anything outside of what is  
specifically mentioned in global addressing policies.  If you think  
this would be valuable and that it would make sense as a global  
addressing policy, then you should propose it in the RIR policy  
forums, get consensus amongst the five RIRs and have them forward it  
to ICANN as a global policy.
