It would be good if the authors can respond to Frank's query below. Their answer will significantly help bring clarity to the issue they are trying to resolve.
If it is an issue of denying entities that can justify for additional resource the ability to access the resource with a time cap then there is reason for concern from anyone who has potential of absorbing and justifying for additional resource. The Bis proposal as a results puts AFRINIC in a precarious legal position in so far as AFRINIC's mandate of allocating resources is concerned. When we put AFRINIC in that position we are also giving up our community right to develop our allocation policies and are giving that power to legal systems to ensure fairness of our policy. While we should encourage IPV6 deployment we should facilitate for everyone who requires IPV4 resources to get them whether they are big or small. Remember the so called big LIR tend to operate in more than one country and may need more IPV4 for the less developed regions of this continent and these are many.
IMHO I propose we retain the current active policy already in operation that is more balanced and not proceed with BIS proposal.

"any organization (regardless of its size) can be allocated /18 within a
24 month period during exhaustion phase 1 and /22 during exhaustion phase."
this is already the case now.
even better. if they (any organisation) justify, they can get even more.
You point out positive things about the new policy (proposed), but these
are already in place in the currently active policy.
So how is it an improvement?
