If I understnand the 5 RIR for all major continents (or rather parts of 
the world as Asia & Europe are same continent) had been the goals from
almost the start of the process moving from single Internic to 
multiple RIRs.

And LACNIC had been in process of being setup from 1997 or 1998 and so is 
AfriNIC. The dates for setup corresponds more to when the region's internet
become more developed and when there were enough ISPs there to form 
organization that could become self-sufficient in couple years (if I 
undersand for both LACNIC and for AfriNIC first two years they are being 
financially supported by outside organizations and not strictly by members)
