It is not the word I would have used but this policy and others are stacked against smaller organizations and that could be construed a cabal - larger/older organizations against smaller/newer ones.  Anyway I did propose a one line policy in my first post on this subject and I will list it here again for you.  I have since been furnished with the documentation to formally submit it which I will do when I get some time to go thru it.  Here it is again:
> “Regardless of any other ARIN Policy,  ARIN will allocate an IP block matching ARIN’s current Minimum IP Block Size, to any organization or entity that can reasonably demonstrate a need for an IP block.”

I'd support this and, if you need assistance in getting it into
"proper" policy form, please let me know, I'm an elected Advisory
Council member and I'd be happy to assist.
