[arin-ppml] Policy Proposal 2008-2: IPv4 Transfer Policy Proposal -Revised

I did not know that there was any way to control geographic use area..  So
far as I know there is no way I can tell my router to deny from Tanzania..
(sorry Tanzania, I don't hate you, I just had to pick somebody)..

Is there some BGP trick I don't know about that prevents me from advertising
an out of area network?

If it cannot be policed then it shouldn't be in the verbage.  Nothing will
erode authority quicker than making rules you cannot enforce.
