Yes, ICANN should not be accrediting *anyone*, not registrars and not TLD
registries, except to present an initial and yearly certificate from a
qualified auditor that:

   a) The registrar or registry adheres to industry standard protocols
      (However, there needs to be some flexibility built in here to allow
      for protocol experimentation and evolution by regi*s - [that's 
      pronounced "regi-stars"]

   b) The regi* engages in adequate business data protection practices
      that business failure or disaster will leave enough records and
      assets in usable form that another entity can resume operations
      or acquire assets.
