I'll reply to the question first.  The answer is no.

Application policy might be decoupled from, for example, 
regulations.  However, regulations can have an impact on how the 
application works.  I agree that the IETF is neither skilled nor does 
it have any influence on those topics.  That is applicable if the 
intention of this (IAB) effort is to have something similar to what 
is done in an IETF WG.
