[policy-wg] AfriNIC policy: IPv6 for critical infrastructure

Hi All,

* I agree with Jordi, exceptions should be made to organisations that run 
critical services like TLD root servers (ccTLD managers for instance). These 
organisations require a PI address space as this will enable them to have 
more control over the address space they use.

* Policy ratification should be done online. A system of determining whether a 
majority of the community is in agreement should be established. Face-to-face 
ratification has it's own drawbacks. For instance, if current policy bars an 
organisation from getting Internet resources to perform certain crucial tests 
and/or tasks or to provide critical Internet services, then that organisation 
deserves to have a mechanism at their disposal through which they can propose 
policies that can be ratfied within a reasonable period (reasonable in that 
the period can even be included in a Project Plan if need be).

* The idea is NOT to ease the process of assigning Internet resources, but to 
reduce the effort in implementing Internet services and technologies. Rigid 
policy formulation structures may contribute to the slow 
implementation/deployment of new Internet technologies.

* I also propose that these prefixes be assigned on a temporary basis (with a 
defined testing period) but with the option of retaining them based on some 
defined RIR criteria.
