While I have no doubt of the ability for someone to play that game
once,  I do not see ARIN staff not noticing the interesting definition of
(transient) "need" that would be required to do this with large quantities
of numbers, and initiate any appropriate reviews.

I agree with Owen that this is not a perfect policy, but is another one
of the IPv4 pragmatic policies that we need to pass, and move on.
