Just to make 110% certain, you're saying here that it is the *need* that
must be in the RIPE region, not the *organisation*, correct?
Example 1: China Unicom sets up a legal organisation in the Netherlands,
joins the NCC, and requests an allocation from which they intend to
assign addresses to broadband customers in China. They intend to
advertise the allocated prefix(es) to peers at AMS-IX (as well as from
other exchange points around the world).
Example 2: I, representing an existing LIR in the RIPE region, build a
data center in Australia and set up a server hosting business there. I
want to make an assignment to a new customer in this data center from my
IPv4 allocation received from the RIPE NCC, and request that from the
NCC hostmater using a ripe-488 form.
Assuming all the documentation is otherwise in order and the need is
real, will these requests be granted or denied?
