That emergence of these RIRs was original goal and not just something
that happened in "last few years".
BTW - In general I completely agree that ITU taking over IPv6 and

governments should look about making their concerns heard through RIR
structure or make their case for new RIR if they think their IPv6
requirements are so unique to their country.
