I'm happy to say that I've already received the answer to this question,
and the description shows me that a small multi-homed site does *not* have
to get their space from ARIN.  That was the one piece of the puzzle I
needed to see the picture, and I thank the people on this list for their
patience in explaining the matter to me in detail.

Without that one puzzle piece, the whole discussion was looking like a
pissing contest.
