I also oppose your decision based on what you can read below :-)

This can be easily fixed if all agree. Reasons for this have been explained many times...

3.2 The reviews cover all allocated/Assigned resources, but priority goes
to IPv4 and ASN mappable to two-octet ASN.

Is this guidelines of how AFRINIC shall exercise this authority so bad ?

Hmmm. there are the “Witch”. I see none here.
It is about people using public ressources(need based) been given right and opportunity to show that they complain to rules.
- Say what you do ( when you apply for the numbers)
- Do what you say (when using the numbers)
- Prove it (when you are asked to)

I, personally do not see this. There seems to be a general agreement, that AFRINIC staff is trusted for allocating the numbers based on need justifications and following the policies and BCPs...

I am still convinced that the price shall be "cost recovery" for AFRINIC and based of level of service offered to members and not based on value of ressources. But i am open for discussing…..
Hope this helps
