No, I wouldn't be worried. I don't think the net will break or
anything like that. I actually think that as more of the Internet goes
v6 the incentive to adopt/migration to v6 will be more apparent to
operators around the continent which is welcome considering how much
all the efforts so far have brought us.

If an organization is not domiciled within AFRINIC's service region,
it would cease to be eligible for resources, so whilst I understand
that this issue is not exactly black and white, I still wouldn't be
too worried about it.
