#1 is a real concern.   AFRINIC cannot afford to have the meagre IPv4 addresses its has available in comparison to other RIRs going out of the region, legacy or not.   

I cannot support this and would only consider a one way transfer into AFRINIC.   I would encourage you to propose policies along this line - here or/and in other RIRs so any reciprocity rules that prohibit such policies are rescinded.
