[rpd] IPv4 policy on where space is used.

Personally I am in favour of keeping our resources regional. I think that we 
have all been offered large sums of money to get space and then sell it off 
the continent.

But then its IP... does it really matter?

As far as I am aware, the current requirement for getting address space is 
that you are a company properly established (all legal - as such) in Africa. 
There is currently no policy (except with the last /8) that states the 
resources you get have to be used in Africa....

This might be good.... (get rid of all the IPv4, start using IPv6) or Bad... 
(we are doing *what* with our resources???)

Maybe some policy needs to be designed - how do people feel...
