What's "suspicious" about it? I tell ARIN "look, I need 660,000 addresses... I found someone with that many, but they're in a bunch of different blocks. Over the next few hours you'll be getting a bunch of transfer request forms with associated justification"
"Here's my justification that I need 660,000 addresses... which of course also justifies the 65536 for this /16"
"Here's my justification that I still need over 594k addresses... which of course is sufficient to justify the 131072 for this /15"
"Here's my justification that I still need over 463k addresses... which of course is sufficient to justify the 512 for this /23"
And so on and so on until they get down to the last block.
Nothing suspicious, nothing that violates the policy, just a big waste of time for all three parties involved.
I think this is one case where the staff outsmarted the AC for a good reason.
