Where I work, we tend to make about 2 or 3 assignment in a whole month. Its
therefore not daily as you assume.

> In section 2.0:

> "Number resources are non-transferable and are not assignable to any other

> organization unless AFRINIC has expressly and in writing approved a request

> for transfer. AFRINIC is tasked with making prudent decisions on whether to

> approve the transfer of number resources".


> Assignment takes place on a regular basis between business and business,

> manage such massive amount of assignment.


Please read that very part of the policy proposal again.

For instance, if every assignment approval takes 2-3 days (maybe even way

> longer!), this means during the "pre-approval period" businesses and

> end-users will not have the resource they need for daily operations.


You said for instance so basically you are making assumptions.
