[AFRINIC-rpd] Commencement of the last call

I 100% agree with you Owen, and as one of the authors I have attempted to
adhere to this.

The financial issues have been asked and answered, the inequality in current
space distribution on the continent between the Southern region and the rest
of the continent has been addressed and the issue of utilising the space by
keeping it on the continent has also been addressed.  If people still have
issues with these answers, we cannot address them without further
articulation of the concerns.  Part of the consensus process is to build
towards a common goal, and we have done our best to answer each query as it
was raised, and if the answers were not satisfactory and did not adequately
explain our position, we can do nothing more but wait for further questions
which will allow us to further clarify the position.  This is the nature of
consensus building.

The same should apply equally to statements of support.
