no.  you are updating the policy to say:

… which is enforcing *your* idea of how their network should run.
… which is not what afrinic should do.

assume i am a later-comer.
assuming i have need for IPv4 for a purpose you cannot imagine.
assume i have done the math, and i do not need IPv6 for a period of time 
that i feel is acceptable to me.
or, that i can get IPv6 from my transit.  or .. [$scenario].

v4 and v6 are different resources.  this is why we have different
