I fully agree to this.

What I want to have:

- One Abuse Contact for every single IP address.
- Single(!!!) place for abuse contact information.
- E-Mail address A for personal communication.
- E-Mail address B for automatic communication.
- No or higher query restrictions for E-Mail address B.

I think all this already found consensus in the AfriNIC meeting. That's
why the proposal was brought back to discussion and not canceled at all.
So we can move the decision on how to implement the requirements in the
database to the AfriNIC Development Group.
