I agree with Mark and support the Lame Delegations proposal.  As someone who 
runs a nameserver that has many lame delegations to it from organisations 
who're difficult to reach or may not even exist any more, I'd appreciate it 
if AFRINIC could be empowered to remove those delegations.

The only concern I have is that, while the policy calls for repeated testing 
before taking action (proposed CPM 10.7.1), the tests should be conducted 
from multiple locations on the Internet.  A routing problem which causes a 
nameserver to be only partially reachable should not result in delegations to 
that nameserver being removed.  This may be merely an implementation detail 
that doesn't need to be explicitly addressed in policy, though.
