When exhaust happens, even if you have need,  you are going to have to pay 
the price required for somebody to sell to you instead of to another person 
with need, according to current policy.
Attested need will only be the price of entry to the "ARIN auction".
It won't change the fact that you will have to outbid all the other needers.
Unless you are proposing that ARIN go to a policy like at APNIC where the 
remains of the free pool are rationed, and you can only get a certain 
maximum amount.
