All of this exercise at definitions and ambiguity discoveries points to a
total warp in the afrinic fee structure. That is what needs equitable
review, not definitions.
My 1 micro-lira.

this creates exactly the sort of ambiguity I referred to previously.
There exists the potential for an organisation that neither uses its IP
assignments *exclusively* for its internal use, nor *primarily* assigns
address space to end-users. (Note the emphasised words.) From the
discussions, most universities come to mind.
Ergo (at least some) universities are neither end-users nor LIRs.
Which is why I think that end-user should be !(LIR || RIR).
