I disagree with your suggestion that the RIRs are not special. They
are recognized as being "special" by ICANN.
I will not pursue a rat hole discussion on whether ICANN is "special" :-).
ICANN is also a legal entity, with the same vulnerabilities
as all other companies including RIR's... which was my point.
"Special" is reserved for governments... :)
Opinions expressed may not even be mine by the time you read them, and
certainly don't reflect those of any other entity (legal or otherwise).
