I think the resources are for the regions Internet development and it should stay that way and make policies that drive that
Wether it is written in policies or not, it is difficult to convince Internet users in Africa that their Internet development is 'overseas'
The African RIR would be interested in guarding its stewardship and function in public interest likewise one would want to be aware how the resources are used requiring resource members to be sincere, provide network information, contribute policies etc
With above I am not interested on ideas to use numbers out of region but interested in how to use the numbers in the region
One would be guided by genuinely working in trust
