[rpd] Last Call for "AFPUB-2016-GEN-001-DRAFT-04 - Internet Number Resources Review by AFRINIC"

I've been reading through the discussions of this policy for some time
and frankly, I think it took some weird turns at times.

To address some of the valid concerns. The audit some people are talking
about here are full audits and they certainly take time and considerable
resources. Although the kind of output that should be expected from
AfriNIC are simply in the form of "we have about x million (verifiable
approximations) of clients and x+1 million of IP resources. Meaning we
use most of our resources, thus our allocations are justified". No
sensitive information should be involved, since such information is
usually available for the public.

As for the second concern, people (or companies) shouldn't be worried
about resource loss since this only happens if the resources are "not"
used or are used outside the African continent, in which case it
shouldn't  be AfriNIC that gets sued but the company itself.

As a side not, I'd like to point out that "dick measuring" (please
excuse the term) does not belong in this list, nor do personal attacks.
We discuss policies not people.

Eid mubarak to all

Greetings from Rabat
