And, I want it perfectly understood that in full disclosure, I am NOT the Bill related to Bill's Bait and Hosting Megacorp.
and furthermore hold no legacy blocks in hoard... ;-)

Let me suggest a slightly different approach:

The four orgs make those bids to ARIN. ARIN then makes the following
public bids:

$75 for a /24 only if the rest of the /22 CIDR block is held free by ARIN
$150 for a /23 only if the rest of the /22 CIDR block is held free by ARIN
$300 for a /22
$800 for a /21
$1100 for a /20
$2000 for a /19
$3100 for a /18
$3100 for a /17
$3100 for a /16
$3100 for a /15 (which _won't_ be given to Bill's Bait because $3100>$2500)
$5600 for a /14 or anything shorter.

As soon as someone accepts one of these bids and sells space back to
ARIN, these offers are retracted and new ones published based on the
remaining demand. The difference in money folks pay per address is
reflected in the place they claim in the queue. Any addresses left
over from a buy will go to anyone who bids at least as much per
address as the most expensive person in the buy. These relatively
random infusions fund ARIN's administrative overhead for this payment
