[resource-policy] AfriNIC Policy Proposal: IPv6 ProviderIndependent (PI) Assignment for End-Sites

If I'm an IXP (don't need the prefix to show up in the "global routing
table") and would like a /96 please...
... then I'd have no problem with that statement.
Admitted, not many will want to justify a longer prefix ....

If clarification can be added without blowing or restricting things,
that's of course welcome.


PS: right to use only the new list name now?
