Depending on your definition here, 4 out of 5 have exactly equal amount == 0.

This isn’t entirely true.
It’s possible that an operator needs more than they can get via current AfriNIC policies due to “soft landing” limitations.
In such a case, said operator might prefer to transfer a large amount of space in even if they are paying for it on the market
rather than suffer with the small amount of space they can get from AfriNIC due to the current restrictions.
Is there a valid reason to preclude such a transfer which, in reality, prolongs the AfriNIC free pool to the benefit of other
organizations in Africa?
