dear colleagues:

Here is one thing very much confuse us, would appreciate if community
can help clarify.

If you running massive customer gateway service, each individual
customer are being assigned one ip address, so you register the IP
range providing the service as your own infrastructure.

Here comes the country attribute, because you not sure where exactly
customer coming from, should you use one of the following as
legitimate country registration?

1. Where your infrastructure located.

2. where the customer themselves choice to be represented.

3. where your legal member company to Afrinic located.

which one is "legitimate"? or all of them are "legitimate"?

As we believe country registration are very much from business point
of view rather than operational point of view(it's just one line in
the database in which don't really tell anything about the network
point of view unlike bgp). should Afrinic during the process of
evaluation taking member's business into account as well or rather
than evaluating the pure technical need.

hoping member community to help clarify.

Kind regards.
