This seems a straighforward conclusion to the anticipated withdrawal of this
policy element.  Given that the policy is no longer in force given the ARIN
BoT suspension after the successful emergence and recognition of AfriNIC by
ICANN, I support this proposal.

And congratulations to AfriNIC http://www.afrinic.net/ once again...
