This situation should fall under;  allocations for

considering their usage justified,  as soon as they designated IPs for
their equipment.

As an LIR / registration authority creating sub-delegations from ARIN
allocated resources, the "TPIA" provider (or whatever it's called)
should be required to maintain their sub-delegations contact records,
and maintain the documentation of usage, and  that the subdelegations
are efficiently used, based on a utilization criterion  in compliance
with policy,  as any other LIR has to do.
