A designated 'abuse' POC is important:

   1. to enhance the management of abuse cases (it's more directed)
   2. to enhance the management of cybersecurity

I propose that a far more useful addition to the AfriNIC whois would be an
> abuse-c link for inetnum, inet6num and aut-num objects. This link line could

> LIRs who have the requirement can then create role objects for their abuse
> team in order to direct the communication to the relevant POC.

This would work.
