The IETF proposal did not set it as a requirement that ownership of
IANA.ORG be transferred as a part of the transition. The RIR community 
needs to think if they believe it really is a requirement. But I guess that 
the question for us is from the IETF perspective, if other communities 
believe they need that, is the IETF community OK with that? If we are, 
there are some implications to the IETF Trust, some rules to think about
for various future same/different/partially different IANA operator scenarios,
and some negotiations about these. I think we can set most of that aside
for the moment, as details to worry about later. But what is the high-level
guidance from the IETF community on this?

From my perspective the question that we should try to answer at the 
IETF is as follows. While we are (in my opinion) not changing our
proposal - it stays at the “not required” state, is the IETF community
OK with a change of ownership? The IETF and RIR proposals are
only incompatible if they require the change _and_ we oppose it.

FWIW, my read of the earlier discussion in IANAPLAN was that
our opinion was “not required” rather than that we’d oppose it. If
that is right, then the answer is perhaps that we’d be fine with
that. Do I read that right, and what do others think?
