On the contrary, ICANN really has no choice but to ignore the entities
you call "root-zone publishers".  It is in contractual relationships 
with numerous entities for whom the assumption of a single 
authoritative root zone under ICANN custody is fundamental.  The 
largest of these contracting entities is the USG, but every single 
other entity involved also has a justified expectation that ICANN will 
carry out the mandate of preserving the authority of that single root 

This is not just theory, it is dollars.  All the registries, and 
registries to be, have a direct financial stake in the authority of the 
current root.
