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.
