I'd specifically be interested in the "core mechanic, " and how the dice are rolled and read.
If you go through the "Still no News" Thread I have posted some infos on all Chapters that will be in the book.
As I am under NDA I am not allowed to disclose the mechanics of the game. And I do not know the games you referred to above.
The ASOIF Book has one chapter devoted to creating noble houses (which might equal the organisations you refer to). The mechanics are the skeleton that carries the flesh an blood that is the roleplaying aspect of it all. What I mean is: how the players and the DM play the house is far more inportant than the statistics. But to be able to measure success (or defeat) in the game of thrones, you have to have some solid rules.
I simply love the new game. It is designed to fit perfectly in GRR Martins world. But you can port it over and use it for every Grim and Gritty setting you want to play eg. Real World Middle Ages or Arthurian Mythos needs almost ot tweaking by the DM.
