Current Iraq government exists because there is substantial US military
presence in the country. Lets assume that at some future point US gets
tired in spending billions on dollars on such operation and that some
time later on the Iraq government is overthrown and fled the country
(taking dns servers for .iq TLD along with them) and establishes "government in exile" headquartered in Texas :) The new Iraq government after period of civil war then requests redeligation of .iq domain from IANA. What actions will they take if US still recognizes old government?

BTW - Also think about what makes current Iraq government legitimate as
opposed to say representative of the old one (which lucky for US did
not establish official government in exile after start of occupation).
