The reasons for this, as best as people can make out from the outside, are also reasonably well known: AfriNIC is already overloaded. This proposal would add *even more* burden to that workload, and merely on those grounds can be considered imbecillic.

Though we are all open to our opinions i think your point above is baseless.  AfriNIC exists to serve the community and if there has been operation issues in the past (which you need to be very specific) it should not prevent the community from proposing a policy that they feel will serve there needs.  Unless you are saying that AfriNIC does not and will never have the capacity to meet community needs.  Thats another discussion you need to start and be very specific.

Lets please stick to the particulars of the policy discussion in question.
