Well, what if they happen to have a few sites in one location and on metro-E before connecting to the ISP?  There are of course other situations that would require more than /30.  I don't think we should limit our policy just for some special cases.

They gave their justification, based on their sense of security (or whatever it is).  In this case, based on current ARIN policy, we can't grant their request.  That was my response to them in this case.

There are many legitimate reasons not wanting their company names to be publically associated with the IP addresses.  For instance, if they only need to set up their IPSec VPN across the Internet.  Also in some cases they do not have the admin staff and outsource the network management to the upstream ISP.

On this point specifically, if they only need to set up a VPN tunnel to
run everything through the head office then give them a single /30: one
IP for the gateway and one IP for the VPN device. Since it's below the
/29 threshold stated in it doesn't need to be registered in whois.
