[AfriNIC-rpd] Proposal: Global Policy for IPv4 Allocations by the IANA Post Exhaustion now online

Hello McTim,
>preclude the ITU from getting any IPv4 space if they are able to form a RIR??

I think from the links you provided, this is well taken care we still need to hide something in.....and by hide i mean omitting it from abstract/incentives and inconspicuously slipping it somewhere.....Didn't we just mention "transparency" in this same policy???

>RIRs allocate based on need. IANA allocates to RIRs when the RIR has used ~80 of its previous /8 IIRC.  If they weren't diviided even;y, RIPE and ARIN would probably demonstrate need faster and therefore get more of the pool.

These are the statements that i base my comment:-

#Defines "need" as the basis for further IPv4 allocations by the IANA. 
#The Reclamation Pool will be divided on CIDR boundaries and distributed evenly to all eligible RIRs

There is allusion to basing allocations on both "evenness" and "need" - i personally feel these two are mutually exclusive...

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.
