Agreed. I'm also surprised by the lack of take-up of IPv6 address 
allocations.  Perhaps AfriNIC could add incentive by not billing 
anything for holding IPv6 address space (still charge the initial fee) 
until we run out of IPv4. That way - it doesn't matter if people get 
address space now or later - everyone starts to pay at the same time.
This should not effect the income stream of AfriNIC because the same 
people will still be paying for IPv4 addresses - for quite a few years 

If its not going to effect the bean-counters of the IPS's that the 
Techies work for - Techies will get their addresses.
If Techies have their IPv6 allocations/assignments - they'll want to 
play with them.
Things may just happen (snowball) a little faster.
