"Don't assume that this is a 'one time deal". When you set policy, you

and for ARIN should apply to ALL of ARIN, not just a sub-region.

If and when AFRINIC gets going and can actually set their OWN
policies, then they can do what they want for their region(s). Until
then and as long as they are part of ARIN, they must abide by the
guidelines that are setout for all of ARIN.

If they want to relax their requirements for IP space once they become
their own RIR, then they are free to do so; in fact I encourage it as
there seems to be a demand from their own special needs.

This is my point. I hope that makes it clear."

How does this differ from what is being asked???? The same 
supposed sub-region will become Afrinic, so what's the problem here?
The only diff is that the African ISPs will be moving forward earlier 
than wait until Afrinic takes form.
