A more liberal interpretation of the law could, in fact, even accept that only the signature and date need be in the issuers own hand. I am not sure which interpretation applies, but, it seems to me that 10.35 provide clear contextual limitation to the amount of the instrument which must be hand written.

The liberal interpretation is what we have used so far. I have cross checked this with our legal counsel during AFRINIC16 and he confirmed that it should be that way.
