The proposed policy as written requires an org who requests an allocation to be an ARIN member for at least 1 year. According to ARIN's website there are currently 2371 members. As a worst case under this policy only ~2k PI blocks could be issued in the next 12 months. That seems like a pretty slow start to me.
