Artificially limiting the potential use by entities (and thereby
effectively limiting any use whatsoever) on in this in a non-AfriNIC
region seems like a very bad move. There are quite a few reasons one
could list. Your biggest customer wants to branch into a European
office and requires a /24 there, but since your total allocation is a
/22, it exceeds the 10% mark... I definitely oppose inclusion of this
