[AfriNIC-rpd] Pushing IPv6

If i get you right, then this policy would be:-
1. Requiring Members applying for v4 to apply for and be
allocated/assigned v6 blocks as well
2. Requiring members to (somehow) demonstrate usage of their v6 blocks.

Borrowing from my experience authoring the IPv4 Softlanding Policy,
where similar ideas were advanced, i would say this would be
"dictating to Members how to run their networks..." - To use the exact
words used at the time.

Now, unless the community's take on this has changed, I remember these
points bringing alot of contention to the said Policy with the only
option being for us to remove the whole tying v4
allocation/assignment/usage to v6 (or the reverse) out of the Policy.

So going  by the Community's feel at the time (which i doubt has
changed much), i wouldn't say this makes sense....But maybe i am wrong
on the community's perspective.

Life is the educator's practical joke in which you spend the first
half learning, and the second half learning that everything you
learned in the first was a joke.
