i also oppose this proposal. seems counter to community spirit on Afrinic managing resources and an aggression on Afrinic resources.

It is possible that there will be continued demand for IPv4 addresses long after the AfriNIC pool is depleted. New ISPs (and those growing their existing networks) that do not want (for various reasons) to consider IPv6 will be looking for IPv4 addresses. This proposal attempts to propose a legitimate way for such ISPs to acquire IPv4 addresses from existing AfriNIC members (legacy or not) who wish to give away some addresses (with some consideration or otherwise).
