I asked the third question [1] to the authors of the proposal as I 
was not sure whether it would cover the above case.

You asked a good question.  Is it appropriate to refuse to provide or 
revoke resources for an Internet Service Provider which services over 
50% of the users in a country?  I asked the president of ISOC 
Mauritius for his opinion about the proposal.  I also pointed users 
in the country to the proposal as I cannot speak on their behalf.

What if there was an internet shutdown in Mauritius?  Would it affect 
the operations of the national ISP in Benin?
