Kevin,

I have a question.. with regard to item

           Have an IPv4 assignment or allocation directly from an RIR,
           the IANA or legacy registry

          Qualify for an IPv4 assignment or allocation from ARIN under
           the IPv4 policy currently in effect

do you really mean an assignment or allocation under ANY policy in effect?
If an org has a micro allocation from ARIN of some very small size they
should still qualify for a /44?  I am not passing any judgement here I am
just curious.

Thanks
---Cathy
