No I am not advocating that. I find your new interest in adhering to
policies encouraging.

Why stop at my word or interpretation of incomplete information you don't

I will submit to a review of any allocations related to me by AFRINIC at
any time.

I have expressed emphatic support of the Internet Number Resources Audit
policy proposal which also covers IPv6 and ASNs - http://www.afrinic.net/

I recall that you were the first to object on grounds that resemble your
current line of inquiry.

Are you now able to see that the proposal is useful and why we should all
support in passing it through quickly?
