Does anyone have pointers to data on what sort of sever load the root
servers currently face? And, especially, how this compares to what they
can stand? (Not to mention how we calculate the latter...)
And while I'm wishing, how about data showing how this compares to the
load on the name servers that serve, say, .com?

that's simply incorrect.
My point is that ICANN only needs to design policies which allow for the
creation of TLDs such as .auto and .car, but they do not need to decide
that specifically .auto gets in while .car does not.
Sure, but such decisions still have to be made due to various considerations
including but not limited to root server load, and moving that decision away
from ICANN to another controversial organization isn't likely to solve any
problems that I can see.
