Why is this such a  big deal?  We're talking about A web server, with 
redirects for different portions of the site, to the various 
organizations that the IANA functions have been divied up to.

One big theme, when discussing why the IETF should not care about the 
domain was that there were technical workarounds - i.e., using a 
different domain name for the IETF portion of the IANA functions. THAT 
would be a right royal pain.  This is a case where a simple, technical 
fix, works just fine.

How about some simple language, along the lines of:

"The IETF Trust will provide a web server that contains one 
informational home page, and redirects all other traffic to sites 
maintained by the organizations currently delegated the various IANA 
functions.  The IETF Trust will license the use of appropriate 
trademarks to organizations currently delegated the various IANA functions."

Done.
