Interesting to read about analogies referring to hunger and starving when talking about Africa and its resources. It speaks for itself.

Dont ignore the intra-africa IPv4 transfers that is if the policy becomes a reality.

SO: Well the goal should not be for big players not to get their resource through other means if they care to go through the rigorous process, and ofcourse they will require patience as well since the intra-policy allows periodic transfer. That said, it will be transfer of resource which is already considered allocated anyway so it may not be a thing to worry about.

On a separate note, one of the things that has occurred to me lately, is a question on how to take advantage of the v4 space (now that its still seem to be hot cake) to serve the AFRINIC region and also to improve the sustainability of organization as a whole. Perhaps its something we should ponder upon as well.
