I don't really think you need to specify a minimum block size for this.
Assuming ARIN adopted the exact same policy/fees that APNIC is using, I
can't imagine anyone paying $1200 per year for a /25 or longer. Not to
mention that most of the internet isn't going to accept their route
anyway. I think APNIC's policy is a little vague though, there doesn't
seem to be any requirement to continue being multi-homed after receiving
your IP assignment.
APNIC's policy is a good template to work from but I think something
needs to be added to it saying that your IP space will be revoked if you
can't prove that you're still multihomed when it comes time to pay your
annual IP address and/or ASN fee. I think something also needs to be
added saying that these small IP assignments will come from blocks within
the old Class C space to avoid being filtered by ISP's that filter on the
old class boundries. Otherwise, you may find that your /23 assignment
out of 22.214.171.124/8 is blackholed by some providers.
