Close.  For new number resources to be allocated/assigned to an 
organization, it must show that existing allocations/assignments are 
properly utilized and new resources are justified.  That's not quite the 
same thing.

That is one purpose of 2007-14, which recently completed Last Call and 
should be adopted by the ARIN BoT fairly soon.  Then, ARIN staff will 
have the power to enforce utilization requirements on existing 
non-legacy resources.

However, a significant part (many would say most) of the suspected abuse 
is in legacy space, and 2007-14 exempts that.  I will be submitting a 
proposal to remove that exemption once 2007-14 is adopted, and we will 
see whether or not there is consensus on that point; in the past, there 
has been significant resistance to the idea.
