[AFRINIC-rpd] Commencement of the last call

If I may ask the following on the list, because this is part of what is
required when determining consensus as per the IETF draft document on rough

If there are objections to the policy, if these can be clearly articulated
with solid modelling, technical objections or financial objections, that are
based on solid information and not hypotheticals, it would be hugely

This way,  should the policy not pass last call, we can then examine exactly
what changes need to be made in order to make the policy more palatable.
However, this is impossible to do if the objections are based on
hypotheticals with no basis in solid information or gut feelings, and by the
IEFT draft document on consensus, objections that are considered when
gauging consensus should be based in fact, since consensus is more than just
a "majority" issue.
