Policy Proposal 2002-3: Micro-Assignments for Multihomed Networks

ARIN's current minimum assignment size is a /20.  The following
is proposed to enable multihomed networks to obtain their IPv4
address space directly from ARIN:

Multihomed networks not meeting ARIN's current allocation guidelines
may receive a properly justified /21-/24 sized network provided
they have no other ARIN assigned space, and return all non-portable
address space within 3 months of receiving their allocation.  No
justification (other than being multihomed, having no other
allocations, and returning all other non-portable space) is required
for a /24.
