To afrinic training team : never give up on deprecating all stuff around
NAT please .

The R&D team could also cross these data with the number of IPv6
training done by the training team on each country :)
In addition to IPv6 readiness, I think IPv6 *usage* should be measured
on one way or another.

Perfectible but yes :)
