I agree with "does not" and "should not," but "will never have"
is not clear to me.

Current policy is to allocate on geographic regional 
boundaries.  Each RIR allocates from separate IPv4 /8s and IPv6 
/23s.  The fact that network operators do not aggregate, or 
that operators connect in multiple regions, is beyond the scope 
of ARIN to remedy.
