IMHO the policies do not cause any harm unless a member decides not to
comply and to ignore any call for compliance. Section 13.4 (B) of the
policy proposal states that:

    « If the situation cannot be rectified and the member did not
      transfer the ressources to meet other AFRINIC-approved needs as
      per adopted policies AFRINIC shall publish the resources to be
      recovered for a period of three (3) months; during which the
      organization may at any time, seek compliance or transfer the
      ressources to other members. »

There is a period to seek compliance.

What could be missing though is a mechanism to limit the trouble to end
users in the process of resources recovery if there is no effort to
comply. Can something be proposed in that sense?

P.S. There are two occurrences of "ressources" in the proposal which
should be written as "resources" instead.
