I am waiting for the author of the proposal and AfriNIC to resolve 
the "date of submission" issue so that the Last Call can start.

This proposal is currently not on the agenda for Tanzania as it has 
gained consensus at the last AfriNIC meeting.  The concerns you have 
raised about this document will be taken into consideration as part 
of the Last Call.  The text in the latest version is the consensus as 
expressed during the last AfriNIC meeting.

I can assure you that your objection will be taken into account.

I'll use a hypothetical case to explain the rationale if I have to 
make a decision.  Please consider it as a guideline and not a rule.

Proposal: AfriNIC will not assign more than one hundred million IPv6 
addresses to a LIR.

If there are two people who send a +1 for the above and one person 
who objects and substantiates the objection with technical points, 
the determination will be "there isn't consensus on this point".

The author of the proposal, the two people in favor and the person 
objecting will be asked to discuss the matter and reach a 
compromise.  If these people cannot work things out, the co-chairs 
will have to figure out what to do.  As an individual comment, there 
is a presumption at my end that people act in good faith.
