technically AS0 is reserved, and the note on my.afrinic says:
“ASN must be between 0 - 4294967295 in ASPLAIN format. "Reserved" and 
"Unallocated" ASNs will be rejected.”
reading that, “0” would be disallowed, although that would be 
contrary to the recommendation of the RFC.

i agree, that this is likely oversight with afrinic’s ROA generation 
utilities, and, i support your request to have this limitation removed.

did you log a ticket with afrinic to track this?
