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

Hi David

That is exactly the point. RIPE NCC and ARIN do deregister if there is
fraud. Wilful breach of the RSA *is* fraud. The policy makes that clear.
Last ressort at deregistering resources would only likely be in case of
fraud as most members should be able to work with AfriNIC to redress
issues (revealed by review).

The fact that the process for fraud is not in their review policies does
not mean they do not deregister. Neither does it mean that the policy
formats have to be the same.
