In a way, yes.

Seen some other way, there is a "6bone registry", which could be seen
as a perfectly fine (special case) RIR on its own.  The "region" it's 
serving is "the 6bone".  The RFC doesn't enumerate the RIRs it's talking 
about, nor does it define "regional IP registry" in any specific way.

I am repeating myself here: this is political nonsense.

Let's fix the technical issues.
