You say, "that means immediately: apologizing for what has occurred, fixing what is wrong and returning any monies it may have gotten from mistakes, if any. In short they have to act responsibly, ethically and honorably, and that perhaps goes farther than just meeting legal requirements."

I would say it is not going further than legal requirements - but is needed to meet legal requirements and keep public confidence in your business.

I think this is a bit more important than P.R. - like this was some sort of mistake (roll-out was purposeful and planned). Who would trust a bunch of thieves and fraudsters? They are much too late for any sort of P.R. excercise.

But then again, Afilias have only been following ICANNs lead ;-)

So ICANN can hardly tell them to act responsibly, given their own record.
