From the ICG website:
The IANA Stewardship Transition Coordination Group has finalized the IANA Stewardship Transition Proposal with the exception of one outstanding item. The names portion of the proposal is conditioned on ICANN-level accountability mechanisms currently under development in the Cross Community Working Group on Enhancing ICANN Accountability (CCWG). Before sending this proposal to the NTIA via the ICANN Board, the ICG will secure confirmation from the CWG that its accountability requirements have been met.

The ICG would like to thank all those who submitted public comments during the ICG’s public comment period. The ICG discussed this input and incorporated it into the current proposal as appropriate. As a result, matters relating to the dependency between the CWG and the CCWG, the Post-Transition IANA, the Root Zone Maintainer, the jurisdiction of ICANN, intellectual property related to IANA, and conformance with the NTIA criteria, among other matters, have been clarified.

The numbers and protocol parameters portions of the proposal are complete, ready for implementation, and have no dependencies on the work of the CCWG or other remaining processes. Preparation for implementation of the numbers and protocol parameters proposals is underway and can continue without waiting for the CCWG to complete its work.
