I would argue that it is three same groups of people…
One group consists of those who believe that the governing documents should be interpreted literally and enforced as they are written. This group has had some successes and some failures over the last few years.
One group consists of those who believe that the governing documents should be interpreted within some nebulous context and thus to have meanings not plain in the text of the documents, but sourced from this so-called context. This group has also had some successes and some failures over the last few years, but this group now seems to have the backing of the AFRINIC board in corrupting and perverting the interpretation of policy in an effort to seize powers never actually granted. This is a very dangerous path and I hope that we can steer AFRINIC off of this path before it goes over a cliff.
One group which does not appear to be ideologically aligned with either group and just wants the battle between the other two groups to end without some form of mutual destruction.

It is too naive from some of them to believe there are much community members who don't notice this. Below a list of the stuff this same group tried and it shows the links between some of these episodes and the type of controversy or even wrong things they keep trying for:
In fairness, I’m pretty sure that Noah, Arnaud, and Marcus each draft their own text, but you are entitled to your opinion.
