[AFRINIC-rpd] Summary as it stands on the Academic IPv4 Policy Proposal

The PDP has always been open to non-members, and to the wider internet
community as a whole, hence in a sense this segregation has always existed
from day one.

This is why when gauging consensus of a policy, both in the face to face
meetings and on a list, individuals from both within the region and from
outside of it, member or not, have a say towards the consensus.  It also
means that anyone, either inside our region or outside of it, member or not,
is free to propose policy and put it through the process.
