Resource Membership is what is allowed based on number resources need with
a purpose to number "open system protocol network services" based
infrastructure in each respective region.

The numbering then supports delivery of a wide range of IP based services,
from public and private Internet connectivity for a wide range of use
cases, public and private hosting and naming/dns .... stuff you are
familiar with.

get IPv4 space from AFRINIC and that entity only option is to lease from
your client running a leasing business of IPv4 allocated to them by the
same AFRINIC? . At a higher cost of 30USD per IPv4..... SAD.
