In order to receive IPv4 allocations or assignments during the Exhaustion Phase, the LIR or End User must have used at least 90% of all previous allocations or assignments (including those made during both the Current Phase and the Exhaustion Phase). In the case of new LIRs or End Users with no previous allocations or assignments, this requirement does not apply to their first allocation or assignment request.

I see no reason not to include Legacy space and treat it as prior allocations or assignments under this policy.

> 3.8.2.  AfriNIC resources are for the AfriNIC service region.  However, organisations that are based in Africa may also have equipment outside Africa, and there is a need for address space to support such equipment.  In order to meet these goals the following requirement is made:
> 	Any organisation that requests or receives IPv4 address space during the Exhaustion Phase, must use more than half of their IPv4 address space in the AfriNIC region.  In determining what fraction of their IPv4 address space is in use in the AfriNIC region, all relevant address space shall be taken into account, including Legacy Address Space, and address space obtained from AfriNIC or any other RIR before or after the beginning of the Exhaustion Phase.  All such use of address space outside the AfriNIC region shall be in support of connectivity for the AfriNIC region.

Works for me.
