  Policy 2001-3:  Micro-allocation Policy

ARIN will make micro-allocations to critical infrastructure providers
of the Internet, including public exchange points, core DNS service
providers (e.g. ICANN-sanctioned root, gTLD, and ccTLD operators) as
well as the RIRs and IANA. These allocations will be no longer than a
/24 using IPv4 or a /48 using IPv6. Multiple allocations may be
granted in certain situations.
