It looks like we are discussing about two different things
here. There is the global policy proposal that is ratified by the
ICANN Board and there is the proposal that is ratified in the AfriNIC
region. The question is whether the proposal is considered as a
policy according to the AfriNIC PDP.

For what it is worth, there is an ICANN announcement mentioning that
the proposal has been abandoned. The proposal has been adopted by
the five RIRs; three of them did it after the announcement. The
point is that it would be helpful to the AfriNIC community if they
are made aware of the deliberations of their peers in the other
regional policy forums about a global proposal.
