Should i care if "individuals" meet the criteria below ?

2) Assignment criteria:

* The end-site must not be an IPv6 LIR

* The end-site must become an AfriNIC End User Member and pay the normal 
AfriNIC fee for its' membership category

* The end site must either:

   - be a holder of IPv4 PI address space or

   - qualify for an IPv4 PI assignment from AfriNIC under the IPv4 policy 
currently in effect.

* The end-site must justify the need for the IPv6 PI address space.

* The 'end-site' must show a plan to use and announce the IPv6 provider 
independent address space within twelve (12) months. After that period, if 
not announced, the assigned IPv6 PI address space should be reclaimed and 
returned to the free pool by AfriNIC.
