RFC1591 is still in force at the moment, which states:

6) For any transfer of the designated manager trusteeship from one organization to another, the higher-level domain manager (the IANA in the case of top-level domains) must receive communications from both the old organization and the new organization that assure the IANA that the transfer in mutually agreed, and that the new organization understands its responsibilities. 

It is also very helpful for the IANA to receive communications from other parties that may be concerned or affected by the transfer.

If you read RFC1591 you will see that the IANA approach has been relatively
hands off.
