Thank you very much M. Jackson. I think we should not try to use policy
where process is what is need. Since no person disagree that it is part of
AFRINIC job, then it should publish a clear process that they use to do

The existence of this policy seem to mean community don't trust that such
process exist and better communication may solve that.

My first reason for start this thread is more about our PDP being broke and
need to be fix to protect it from hijack some large entity. Larus
particularly consern me because it say on their website, under one of their

<<LARUS possesses seasoned expert in IP address policy. To focus on
providing unmatched IPv4 address solutions in the world, IP addresses will
be delegated to you directly from LARUS’s own IP pool. You will use the IP
addresses like your own without limitation regarding geography and usage.
This is a flexible and speedy service to meet your business needs.>>

i Are we sure these IP are not part of what Larus get from AFRINIC?
ii If it is, is that accepted use of IP according to RSA
iii How does company that have IP to sell justify needing more address?

These are thing that make me (and other people) concern and good answer to
them will make thing clear for this community.
