Whereas the author has gone to detail in documenting the problem which
I interpret as mostly administrative (paperwork) for the AfriNIC, and
financial for the applicant, the solution proposed solution doesn't
have a direct correlation with the problem.

Also because the proposed solution creates room for obtaining IP
allocations that could never really be used by taking away the only
form of "reasonable" control (announce a single prefix)...... I am
opposed to this policy.

Life is the educator's practical joke in which you spend the first
half learning, and the second half learning that everything you
learned in the first was a joke.
