My point, if the Afrinic RSA has obervable shortcomings, then that is what
we should address.

At the point of obtaining a resource the RSA is the first and main document
that the LIR/user gets in contact with, so it should be robust and fairly
adequate to guide the person on knowing what and what not s/he should
handle the resource.

Therefore, as we make comparisons, we should do that with the intend of
improving our situation.
