See RFC2606. :)

Which part of "RFC2606" dictates how ICANN should manage example.com? It also makes no mention of  mail exchanger record (MX record)

When I'm guessing I says I'm guessing. Otherwise I check my answers before posting so I'm not posting bad memories/fantasy.

    Read section 2 of RFC2606, which describes the purpose of reserving domain names and reserves a few TLDs. Section 3 describes "example.com" and others as "also" reserved to be "used as examples". That means that they should be treated like the top-level domain ".example." and are intended for use in documentation. There is no reason that a documentation placeholder domain should even resolve.

    In fact, I recall some controversy when the .COM registrar put up a page on example.com, complete with ads, during one of the Internet bubbles.

      How does that RFC section trump ICANN? ICANN is the boss. A purpose is not a limitation :)

        Did you read your own link? That example domains resolve at all is only a means to provide an explanation to unknowing users. And ICANN does not get to do whatever it wants: ICANN is constrained by protocol rules, which RFC6761 takes pains to explicitly reiterate.
