I second that. I feel it is completely unreasonable to impose an additional 
$400 per annum on organisations that simply require an ASN.

In general, I am not a fan of any of the RIR's policies that force 
organisations to become members in order to obtain resources. This just 
creates a situation where a number of people who view the RIR purely as a 
resource provider are forced to receive email that they just delete and 
makes it difficult to assess the involvement of interested parties at 
meetings, in the policy process, etc.

I gather that part of this - at least in certain jurisdictions - has been 
for tax or structural purposes. In some jurisdictions it may be tricky for a 
non-profit organisation to receive income rather than membership fees. 
Unless there is a such a tax/structural requirement for AfriNIC, I'd 
strongly encourage a split between membership fees from resource fees.
