Are you suggesting the lack of ARIN having a Last /8 austerity policy 
similar to APNIC, assigning a small block to each organization out of 
the last /8, effectively shuts out new entrants?

Or, that there is something additionally discriminatory against new 
entrants was added to  ARIN's policies as part of ARIN's IPv4 run-out 

In other words are you saying;

The ARIN policy community fail to take an actions that resulted in 
effectively shutting out new entrants?

Or, the ARIN policy community took a direct action that resulted in 
effectively shutting out new entrants?
