This is an individual comment.  What percentage of those 15 million 
spam messages would generate a query for the AfriNIC region?  Owen 
DeLong mentioned aggregation and bulk whois access in a reply to your

The need for unrestricted query access should not be turned into 
unlimited queries as it can affect Whois operations.
