It's my understanding that the 80% rule only applies to allocations.  i.e. 
When ARIN allocates space to an ISP, we're held to the 80% rule.  When we 
as an ISP allocate space to a smaller ISP, we hold them to the 80% rule.  
When we assign space to an end-user, we hold them to the 25%/50% rule.  

This is pretty much spelled out in RFC 2050.
