[AfriNIC-rpd] Re: Consensus call ??? on Section 3.8 of AFPUB-2010-v4-005-draft-02 - IPv4 Soft Landing

I do not think that this extension by PDP co-chairs is right, it points to my objections 
about having prerogatives in AFRINIC policies. In this case, I do not think that the PDP 
Co-chairs have a prerogative to impose a "Consensus Call" on sections of a proposal, the 
policy does not grant that.

Worse still, I do not think they have a prerogative to limit the time for discussion as 
they seem to be doing here. Time limits are set out properly in the PDP policy for RPD 
discussions sessions, for Last Call sessions, for time-outs etc.

The current process hence worries me a great deal.
