ARIN doesn't set routing policy, get over it, just because ARIN gives 
out an address doesn't mean it will get a routing slot.  And if that 6 
person company, is generating $6M in revenue it can afford to buy its 
routing slot.  If it is generating $6K, probably not.  Why should ARIN 
be that judge?
