[arin-ppml] Policy Proposal 119: Globally Coordinated TransferPolicy - revised

McTim,

I don't think it should be necessary to allow addresses to leave the AfriNIC region in order to pass this globally coordinated transfer policy. As I read it, passing both, in the absence of any local transfer policy in the AfriNIC region, would simply mean that AfriNIC does not object to other regions engaging in inter-RIR transfers, and would open up the possibility of AfriNIC participating at a later date if the community so chooses, perhaps upon exhaustion of the AfriNIC free pool. 

Do you still see a conflict? If so, can you explain further?

Thanks,
Scott
