I object to this use of the paragraph as not only is it unenforceable 
but also a hinderance to African networks looking to expand into other 

Once Afrinic reaches exhaustion phase it is likely that neighboring 
regions where an AfriNIC member is likely to be expanding into are 
probably being exhausted.

This means that they could be forced to use more than their 10%, what 
happens then? They are then at the mercy of the market rather than being 
able to use their existing allocation to continue growing their 
business. Rather than having a competitive advantage as they have access 
to scarce resources they are force to buy in a highly competitive market.
