I too would rather have ARIN space, but some entities don't feel that
way.  I have a customer that utilizes a /21 of our space because they
don't think they can afford the ARIN fees necessary to obtain their
own space.

2001-2 covers the situation where someone *wants* to use their 
upstream's IP space for a /24 -- even if they might not hit address
jstification guidelines.  There are legitimate reasons for this
case -- distinct from the legitimate reasons for 2002-3.
