I don't need evidence that "the AfriNIC RSA is effective". I just
believe it.

You need to show evidence that AfriNIC RSA is NOT effective, if you (or

In the ARIN region they call this the "burden of proof".
I'm ok with the status quo.

and the differences are enough to justify "duplication" of having 5
organisations doing "the same thing". [1]

Ehm.... we knew this. But thanks.


[1] according to Owen they made policy additions to limit the powers of
the RIR to go after members.

PS: am I understanding it right that this discussion is still about
AFPUB-2016-GEN-001-DRAFT-06 "Internet Number Resources Review by AFRINIC"?
