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,
> and business and end-user. If all of these assignments need AFRINIC's
> approval, It will be an herculean task if not impossible for AFRINIC to
> 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.
