I thought the fee structure represented technical concerns, namely.

1) ISP's generate lots of SWIP requests and the like that need to
   be processed, which takes mail servers, programmers, and people
   to watch over it.  End users do not generate (the same level
   of?) requests.

2) The larger the block assigned the more ARIN's top level in-addr.arpa.
   nameservers will be hit, thus the larger the infrastructure cost.
