I was about to compose a detailed reply explaining exactly why my, and most
South African, institutions are nothing like a commercial ISP with explicit
references to policy, contracts & documentation.

However, whilst academically interesting, I realise this discussion has
gotten way, way off topic.  Thus I think it is more succinct to agree to
disagree, since the current debate has no longer has bearing on the original

Andrew proposed a policy.  The only discussion about the policy itself has
revealed that the (spoken) consensus is that the policy as proposed is
probably not necessary.  Instead, Duncan Martin has been suggested that an
alternate policy generically clarifying the definitions of an LIR and EU
might be more appropriate.  (I happen to agree with him.)
