Ah, ok. I wouldn't mind rephrasing that portion of 22.214.171.124 to read
"qualify for an IPv4 assignment or allocation from ARIN under the IPv4
policy currently in effect, or have qualified for, received, and
continue to efficiently utilize an IPv4 assignment or allocation from ARIN."
Would that qualify you for IPv6 PI?
And, out of curiosity, when/how did you get a directly assigned /23?
Did you have to qualify for it under rules similar to the rules
currently in place for PI /22's? Have you been able to maintain
efficient utilization by ARIN's current standards?
