I asked two questions:

1) When an LIR subnets an allocation, and sub-allocates those subnets to different countries, what’s the method for country-coding those sub-allocations?  SWIP?  RWHOIS?  I wasn’t clear on Ernest’s answer to that question.

2) When an allocation winds up being used anycast, where it’s being equally advertised in multiple countries within the region, what country-code should be put in the whois?  You’re saying, here, that it should be the country of incorporation of the LIR, but I’m not sure that makes sense…  Wouldn’t it make more sense to use the country of incorporation of the customer?
