We have resources from several registries, whilst the goal has always 
been to use address space 'within region' there will be leakage where it 
makes sense at a technical level (for example our anycast addresses are 
from ARIN space but deployed on all continents)

It is the situation going forward where exhaustion means that other 
regions have no RIR space left (or it has special 
requirements/limitations) that AfrinNIC members expanding into other 
regions will be impacted.
