Summary of the Problem Being Addressed by this Policy Proposal

Since this policy was developed, the IPv4 addressing space has been exhausted, and the IPv6 deployment has evolved, so it doesn’t make sense to tie an IPv6 policy to the existence or IPv4 (same way as it is not tied the initial allocation policy).

In addition to that, because AFRINIC provided IPv6 PI at no cost to existing IPv4 PI holders, it may happen that the “default” assignment was requested without a proper addressing plan and this may not be the correct one at the implementation time.
