Great. This is the response i expected and i would have been surprised if
otherwise. Based on above then it may be important to clarify the section
of the IAB chair's(your) statement below:

Understanding this consensus[*i.e the IANAPLAN*], the IETF leadership have
been negotiating with ICANN to include text to satisfy these points in
our *annual
Service Level Agreement*.  After some iterations, we arrived at text that
we think captures the IETF consensus[*i.e the consensus achieved on
IANAPLAN* which has been submitted to ICG]

The interpretation of the statement above could imply that IETF wants to
make operational the proposal that came out of IANAPLAN. It is based on
that, that i think the response from ICANN below may not be entirely out of

After some iterations, we arrived at text that we think captures the IETF
consensus[*i.e the proposal from IANAPLAN*], but ICANN has informed us that
they are unable to *agree* to that text *right now*.

So generally speaking (and based on information available to me), it seem
this is a timing issue and there may just be need to clarify from ICANN if
they are fine with agreeing with the term post-NTIA.

As you have rightly stated, I believe the current agreement should-be/is
sufficient enough at ensuring IETF continue to get its usual IANA function
