I'm not a lawyer, but yesterday talking to one, told me that an arbitrary
restriction (not based in any technical reasons, or something similar) to
access a resource, such as the 200 /48 will be against Spanish laws to
protect discrimination among different company size, anti-trust, etc.

My guess is that this regulation is a transposition of EU laws, so it will
apply to many European countries.

In general, membership organizations can setup their own rules (our
policies), but those can't go beyond law or restrict it.

Of course, law in US may be different. My view is that this should be
double-checked in each region.
