I think so, but, I would have to ask ARIN staff.
> 6) I sell you a "network service" over a GRE tunnel which lets you access a few servers I run in RFC1918 space that you can store backups on, I let you use a /20 of my space at your end to access those servers, and I give you an LOA so you can also use this space with your other transit provider.
I believe so, but, I would have to ask ARIN staff.

Of course in each of the situations above, we are presuming that your customer can justify
the need for addresses contained in said /20 (4096 IP addresses).
