For a customer of an ISP that meets the following criteria:

1) has registered an ASN and will be multi-homed to two or more ISPs,
2) cannot reasonably justify the use of a /24 within 3 - 6 months based on

Is it acceptable, in ARIN's view, to assign a /24 to such a customer? I
never came across any documentation at www.arin.net that discusses such a
