The one inherited from the pre-RIR and RIR system distribution, which
created " the donor" who impose reciprocity and compatibility to
"receivers" for transfers. The imbalance which makes some think,
transfers should be more toward those who have less in particular AFRICA.

These stats and the ratios Afrinic vs others will be moving targets
changing over time. When would it be considered too imbalance ? What
would be the recovery plan be after the board halt the transfer policy?
One could also think of board halting the transfer policy at a point where
transfers ratios are well in favor of AFRINiC
Would any of the controlled transfer policies meet the reciprocity and
compatibility rules ?
