You mean allocated.

If an org does not provide connectivity, they're classified as an "end 
site", not an LIR, and the allocation policy explicitly does not apply to 
them.  However, ARIN has a direct assignment policy to cover those folks 
(unlike other RIRs, AFAIK).

Aside: It's not entirely clear to me if a provider not connected to the 
public Internet can become an LIR; does private "connectivity" and 
"advertising" count?
