Now that you mention it, there was some kind of waiver in place
because I remember arguing the case that it would be cheaper to get
the addresses then instead of waiting. But it wasn't a total waiver,
at least not for end-user assignments, because if I wouldn't have
bothered to ask.

The current waiver, of course, does not apply to end-user assignments at all.
