5.1.1 (c) and (d) which is held for the aforementioned organizations 
by 5.7.

The main thing here is that AfriNIC must be renewing these resources, 
and the same clause must apply to renewal (as per my reading of 5.7).

My point is that renewing a /32 allocation to someone that appears to 
show no interest in making use of it is quite a waste, or at least 
there is no transparency in why these resources are being renewed and 
are still not (and have never been) announced by the. I *do* want 
these organizations to have IPv6 space, but I also want to see them 
using it otherwise it's just a farce.

I'm sure there is at least some kind of language to suggest that 
requesting assignments without any apparent intention of making use of 
them is not condoned or tolerated.
