I identify your fear, however i believe that we have 2 scenarios here:

University regionally will help us to discuss further.

*First Scenario*
A university who already have resources and want to request for more based
on the new policy.
For this customer, i believe a justification of use of the resources they
currently have will be required before such new request will be considered
by AFRINIC officials (if this is not the case, then i wish to be clarified
on what is). Also it will be good to check whether the resource they
initially have did not indeed meet their ratio needs as per the new policy.
*Second Scenario*
A university who is just applying for resource for the first time:
This is where the advantage of the new policy will be most applicable and
yes i agree that some institutions in some countries may be fast enough to
put in their requests which could make the IP space more prominent in one
region than the other....perhaps it may be worth checking how some level of
fairness in distribution of the resource across the continent can be
achieved. However i think we still have to consider that you won't deny an
institution assignment just because there has been several request from the
particular region, especially if the institution meets the requirement for

Perhaps its time for each country rep to do their homework with their
respective institutions ;)
