On the contrary...  If they were already an RIR, none of this would
matter, since they'd be handling it within the context of an AfriNIC
meeting.  As the world _actually_ stands, they're still compelled to
handle their business within the context of an ARIN meeting, whether you
like it or not.  Whether they like it or not.  They need to solve their
problem within an ARIN policy context, and that's _completely_ orthoganal
to your desire to make microallocation policies in the US and Canada.
