Actually - ARIN, RIPE and APNIC all allocate to what should one day become
AfriNIC  :-)

Generally... RIPE has the top half of Africa, ARIN the bottom half and APNIC
some islands in the Indian Ocean...


The proposal is basically allowing an african ISP who is a quarter of the
 size of a non-african ARIN ISP to be seen as equally sized when it comes to
 address allocations. Nothing else.
