Please let me know where I can get a copy of the document authorising
IANA to regulate in this area.

Why do you need one?  IANA has the authority to delegate address space
(again, restricting the discussion to just address space for ease of
language); where does it get that from? What compels it to so delegate
without an AUP attached?

The authority is given by the RIR communities who develop the policy. The policy they drafted and agreed did not include an AUP section. I have a feeling that it might not include an AUP because it no-one wanted one. I could be wrong, though.

You can propose a change to that policy through the same system. If you want to change the whole system then Randy is right and you need to take things up elsewhere, like at the IGF.
