While I generally support the idea of AS0 ROAs, I have to say that there is a risk that has not been directly addressed.

This policy assumes that the RIR operates in good faith and does not act in violation of a members rights or its own policies and other governing documents.

Since we have, now, a clear example of AFRINIC doing exactly that, in violation of a court order even, I must urge caution in adopting this policy in this region until such time as we can be assured that AFRINIC has been restored to a good working order and will not further engage in disruptive revocations and terminations without good cause.

Nothing I have said above represents either a lack of knowledge or an untrue statement.

I fully support AS0 ROAs for legitimately unallocated space issued by RIRs acting in good faith.

Unfortunately, at this time, I have no confidence that AFRINIC meets that test.
