[AfriNIC-rpd] New policy proposal: IPv6 ULA-central

Tue Apr 3 13:36:57 UTC 2007

Hi Alain,

The proposal suggest that this (AfriNIC) RIR do it for this region, and the
same for each one of the other RIRs.

I guess it may happen that the NRO could decide, if the proposal goes thru
all the regions to implement a central registry instead of 5 "distributed"
central registries for this purpose, but I guess this is out of the scope of
the proposal, and could be a "next step". I'm not sure if this could work,
but I can imagine that if we reach consensus in every region, it may made
sense to have a single registry, if it reduces the cost, and this being
funded by the NRO common funds.

I believe there has not been a similar case before.

Anyway, as said, the proposal here is to talk about the *AfriNIC* scope, at
least at this stage.

The draft is expired, but as you know can be revived at any time, just with
a new submission. The goal is to do so, in parallel with the advancement of
the PDP in the different regions. The important think here is also to
realize that the space is already allocated to IANA by RFC4193.
