I'd rather see a check done and if possible - over time - change the
name to be consistent with other RIR's.

Certainly make them mandatory.

> In terms of voting rights, as I understand it, a member must be “in good standing” in order to preserve their right to vote. This includes a number of things, including payment of fees and adherence to policies. If a member is not in compliance with the policy, I have no problem with their ability to vote being impacted by that along with their other facilities on my afrinic.

I also agree with this - another method of not being in "good standing"
