Life is the educators practical joke in which you spend the first half learning, and the second half learning that everything you learned in the first was wrong.

"it's" should be "its".

These are editorial comments on the definitions.
An Existing LIR is a LIR that assigns address space to 'end-users' and has
already been assigned or allocated IPv4 address space by AfriNIC.

A New LIR is a LIR that assigns address space to 'end-users' and is a
member of AfriNIC that has not been assigned or allocated any IPv4 address
space prior to the Exhaustion phase.

An End User is an organization that receives assignments of IP addresses
exclusively for use in its operational networks.

In the case of new LIRs or End Users with no previous allocations or asignments, this requirement does not apply to their first allocation or assignment request.

The above paragraph says that the allocation size used is the one in effect at the time of the application. That's the numbers mentioned in "Current Phase".
> 4) AfriNIC resources are for the AfriNIC geographical region. For each alloction or assignment made during the Exhaustion Phase, no more than 10% of these resources may be used outside of the AfriNIC region, and any use outside the AfriNIC region shall be solely in support of connectivity back to the AfriNIC region.
There is a typo for "allocation".
