If this is correct, then someone needs to advise the employees at ARIN.  I 
submitted justification for a client requesting a /20 a bit over a week ago 
and was denied -- not because of insufficient utilitzation -- but because 
the customer was not yet multi-homed.

Oddly enough when I called for policy verification a week prior to the 
submission I was advised that the customer -was- qualified.

At this point, the customer is in limbo.  I would appreciate clarification 
and feedback from ARIN.
