Not really. Rregistrations are applied for by a multitude of members via a
secure system (email and PGP in the UK. The Central body is undisputedly
the registry.

In this model Melbourne IT and CIA and NetRegistry and anyone who wanted to
could operate on an equal footing (just as we all do apart from Melbourne
IT now).

The difference is that there is no FOR-profit entity in the middle, and
therefore the central fee is far lower. Thus ALL players can compete on a
level playing field.
