I would support regulator involvement in a country's IPv6 adoption. I've
seen this work fairly well in Malaysia, where the MCMC (their regulator)
took on a lot of initiative to support IPv6 adoption. However, they did
in a way that did not trample on the operators' business, but rather,
encouraged them to deploy. While Malaysia have come a long way re: IPv6
deployment, a lot more still needs to be done.

My point is it's not easy, and Africa being more than just one country,
co-ordinating this is going to be difficult across the board, meaning
that any objectives that hinge on this could be non-uniform.
