If they're going to game the system by creating multiple orgs to beat the /12 rule, they'll also game the system by using their extensive experience working with ARIN to pass needs assessment tests, or create new fake multihomed orgs and use their untestable 3-month need to get a bunch of space, or lots of other things.
Perhaps, but, I think this is actually less likely and many of those actions are obviously fraud.

I disagree. If the rule you make is a /12 per organization, then, there's nothing fraudulent about creating organizations.
On the other hand, under current policy, most of the things you described to circumvent current policy are, indeed, fraud.
