...reading this paragraph, you are trying to level a playing field of

I thought that "cable companies, DSL providers and Dial-up operators"
were ISPs...

My understanding is if an 'ISP' doles out a /29, we have to SWIP it, and
so would anyone else who has IP space allocated by ARIN, no matter what
type of access they provide.

What am I missing, and what are they enjoying that I'm not?

I don't SWIP the IPs of my dial up clients, nor my DSL users when they
don't have < /29.
