in deed a good question.  Let me leave it for someone else to clarify.  

But the issue that was being used by the authors of the current proposal is that AfriNIC is the last port of call with IPv4 resources.  And Thus organizations from other regions US, Asia , Europe etc will come to the continent, register a shelf company, acquire resources they need in the US and take them to the US thus denying AfriNIC region potential users.  So advocating for a policy that changes all the rules of justification from a needs based on network infrastructure to a needs based on registered students.

is the context in which off the continent is being used in this discussion.  They will definable be valid reasons for resources to be used off the continent./region
