I think one problem is that IANA doesn't have a "brand name", so when you buy
IANA has nothing to do with routing policy and neither does ICANN. ICANN has no authority through any contract vehicle inside any network. Do you have some information contrary to that?
an Internet connection you aren't told you are getting an IANA DNS,
There's no such a thing as IANA DNS. The DoC controls the root DNS zone file. IANA distributes and does change management.
that is assumed. The interesting question is whether that is sustainable if a lot of ISPs provide a non-IANA DNS service. There may be an argument for saying that "non IANA DNS" services can't be described as "Internet services", but that is an issue for ICANNs lawyers.
No, actually, it's not.

They can't, and I doubt anyone is very worried about a lawsuit
from ISC. Legal geniuses they are not.
