I leave it to the community to decide whether a needs requirement policy which:

1 can be manipulated in a way that is "not very difficult" 
2.has the effect of disincentivizing LRSAs 
3 contributes to the lack of valid whois data 
4.artificially restricts supply of address space
5.puts us out of coformance with the region closest to terminal exhaust (APNIC)
6 puts us out of coformance with established law regarding legacy transfers which do not require need

is a policy worth maintaining.

  As is your right.   

  ARIN has more than a decade of experience doing documented needs assessments,
  and (as it has been pointed out by others on the PPML list), it is not very difficult for an
  existing network operation to show the past growth and future plans  to warrant allocation 
  (or transfer) for additional address space.   We often come up with a different view than
  organizations applying for resources, and this does result in a request being denied or 
  going through for a smaller allocation than expected.  As long as the policies require that
  we have documented needs assessment, we will continue to perform them.
