[ARIN-consult] [arin-announce] Fee Schedule Change Consultation

I'm pretty sure ARIN already uses the count of total addresses within an ORG as the basis for the fee?  For example, if an org has 4 non-contiguous /22's (a /20 worth of IP's) they bill at Small (/20-/19) 

I do think the wording could be improved.. Allocation or assignment size instead of "block size"

I also find it interesting that under the current proposed end-user restructuring, a small multihomer that has a /23, a /24, and a /48 with an ASN would have their fees quadruple from $100/year to $400/year while a very large corporate legacy holder (e.g. Apple, HP, MIT) that still refuses to sign the LRSA or ANY RSA would have their fees remain at $0.

Perhaps it would be worth while to consider as part of this fee restructuring:

1.	Removing the fee exemption for legacy holders.
2.	Basing the fees on total address holdings rather than number of blocks.
