Resource Policy Manual - DRAFT

4. Hierarchy of number resource distribution

Internet Number Resources are distributed in an hierarchical structure in which IANA (The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority) allocates blocks of number resources to AFRINIC, to be redistributed throughout the African region. AFRINIC redistributes to its members and also delegates to them the authority to make assignments and sub-allocations to customers where appropriate and in accordance with the policies and procedures described in this document.

The Soft Landing section is missing the 10%rule (what percentage can be used outside of the area). As this was the first thing I looked for - I have no idea what else might be missing.

The "10%" requirement appears to have been removed at one point during the revisions and discussions. The final content restricting out-of-region usage reads: "AfriNIC resources are for AfriNIC service region and any use outside the region should be solely in support of connectivity back to the AfriNIC region"
