That is exactly why below I wrote that Question 5 should be asked no 
matter what support is there for question 4 (micro-allocations only to 
multi-homed ISPs may have larger support in US, but such micro-allocations
maybe needed for african region even without multi-homing requirement 
because they do not have as many providers and in some countries telecom
services are monopolized by country telco as has been previously discussed)

In case both Question 4 and Question 5 have support, the policy will need 
to be modified by AC after the meeting prior to it being sent to BOT to 
say that option a. (no multi-homing but 4 previously allocated /24) is 
available only for ISPs in African region while option b. would remain
available for other ARIN regions as well.
