I think that its probably unneccessary to get too bogged down in 
comparisons of how this is done at ARIN and how we would do it. ;-)

Overall I think that this is a good idea and I am glad that it has been 
included in the agenda:-

It will provide for "general" discussion at the end of the policy 
meeting. I always find that its useful to open the agenda at the end in 
case any important discussion points were missed.

I think that it will also help to bring some of the side-bar discussions 
that happen during the breaks into the PDP. I have heard many great 
ideas discussed over coffee during the AfriNIC meetings. This often ends 
with "I'll draft a proposal when I get home" and you never hear about 
the policy again. This could help bridge that gap.
