I have a couple minor wording changes below, but I'd support your text as-is

I'm content to leave that to ARIN's staff's discrection unless others
believe that more direction is required.

Organizations that meet the direct end site assignment criteria
are eligible to receive a direct assignment. The minimum size
of the assignment is /48. Organizations requesting a larger
assignment or a second (or more) assignment must provide
documentation justifying the need for additional subnets.

Additional assignments may be made when the need for additional
subnets is justified. When possible, additional assignments will
made from an adjacent address block. If an adjacent block is not
available, organizations may request to trade their prior smaller
assignment(s) for a single larger one, with a transition period of
six months to renumber.
I think we also need to state somewhere that allocations under this policy
should be from a block designated for that purpose, so that ISPs that wish
to filter on prefix length know to use /48 as the limit for this part of the
IPv6 space. I don't know if we need to use a different block from
