We (AfriNIC) are not forcing anyone to use IPv6, but merely
implementing policies that the community (you) have put in place as
far as IPv6 address space management is concerned.

If you feel this (12 month) requirement should not have a place in
the IPv6 address management policy, please use the Policy
Development Process to propose a modification as appropriate.

Let me additionally point out one important principle upon which
internet number resources are distributed : Needs basis. We shall
only issue a resource if the requester demonstrates that they need
that resource. If, within the 12 months of receiving it, the v6
resource is not deployed, it was perhaps not needed in the first place.
