Your question is about the applicability of that article in the
Constitution. The article was written after the current policy
development process. The wording is most likely based on legal
advice which AFRINIC received as that is the general practice.

The circumstances are relevant to the application of a policy. If I
am not mistaken, it is similar for the Constitution. I could not
find a valid reason for looking into the applicability of Article
11.4 of the Constitution. I also took into consideration the fact
that you ruled out the quality of it being worthy of attention.

S. Moonesamy

Board Chair, AFRINIC
