1- The points are  not listed by preference or priority.

2- Bigger players from other regions  have more impact on IANA pool exhaustion 
which will affect our region.

So what to do to get our operators and users to avoid   the surprise which  
may be the non availability of ressources in AfriNIC pool when IANA's pool 
will be exhausted.

hope this helps,
