Why should they have to be an ARIN member at all?  Current recipients of
end-site assignments have no such requirement in IPv4 or IPv6.

Requirement 4 is absolutely specious.

Requirement 5 is similarly specious unless you are willing to adapt it to
match current IPv4 policy since adoption of 2002-3 and move the boundary
to at least /22.

Unless you also modify the criteria for an LIR (eliminating the requirement
for assignments to external organizations or altering the definition of
external organizations), this paragraph is meaningless.  They can apply
now, but, they will not receive one because they do not meet the ARIN
requirements for an LIR.
