[AfriNIC-rpd] IPv4 trading needs global policy, says Mueller - issue for AfriNIC PDP ??

This "fiercegovernment..." url is returning errors.  I would have loved to read Muller's thoughts before contributing.  

I recall this topic did come up in Dar, during the AfriNIC-14?  It proposed by some participant from TENET, SA and it did generate quite some debate then. My take is that this is a topic that is likely to get increasingly contentious going forward and members need to really start ventilating on the situation.

Do we as a community want to:
a) NOT trade our v4 space, even as the v4 black market prospers?
b) can we technically stop members from trading in v4 space?
c) should we "legalize" or sanitize the v4 black market by providing a formal policy on the same?
d) etc.

I dont have the answers on this but I would like to hear views from the floor.

Is this an issue that is current for the AfriNIC PDP?

Does AfriNIC need to develop an IPv4 Trading Policy?

See the story, Mueller papers and the RIPE Policy Proposal
