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

Thu Mar 22 12:48:34 UTC 2007

Nobody is asking to be in panic mode, just to fulfill the AfriNIC and the
community rules and having a balance in what is really needed and what is

Making possible for all end-users to apply for this policy may become a big
waste and not only about addresses and routing slots, but also a problem for
AfriNIC to handle contracts, fees and membership of end-users (as
individuals) and many additional implications.
