When developping standards, you have time (you know what happens of IETF milestones...), you are not connected to a production system, you do not implement the standard (or you are paid for that) so you can be sure that operations people will take care of the details. It is less damaging if you do it badly. Here, we are talking of something far more operational, with possible direct consequences to one of the crucial components of DNS security. Frankly, I feel that ICANN claims about its commitment to "security and stability" are hard to take seriously, after this statement of interest.
