WHOIS   (otherwise read as:  implementation of existing policy).

*removal* of something, that’s already in WHOIS is trickier, as 
there’s no policy to allow removal, and afrinic isn’t allowed to 
delete objects, unless they are allocated/assigned to a member that is 
no longer active (ie. closed member), or part of some protracted legal 
process  (and we arenot going there, because that’s not part of this 
policy  :-))

to go ahed and clean up.  more than that, we’re also *telling* afrinic 
that we, as a community, *want* to keep WHOIS clean, and this is how
