unfortunately, afrinic does not support asplain format and only supports
asdot. Compare the output of:

% whois -h whois.afrinic.net as5.1
% whois -h whois.afrinic.net as327681

I'd love to see the end of asdot, but unfortunately it's not yet time.  In
the meantime, if there's anyone from afrinic on this mailing list, could
you please poke the right people to get this fixed?  thanks,
