Bill - 
  We ask for the customer assignment information necessary to 
  verify the utilization.  This is relatively straightforward
  and seems to work well for requesters. If you have very unusual 
  constraints, you are welcome to propose an alternative for ARIN 
  to verify this information for consideration, but please recognize 
  that you are very likely to be told that your proposed alternative 
  is insufficient for verification and we cannot consider those 
  assignments for purposes of calculating utilization.

  If you would like ARIN to consider customer assignments as
  utilized without further verification, or consider proof of 
  infrastructure to be sufficient validation for an assertion 
  of IP utilization typical for such equipment, then please
  propose such as a change to number resource policy.
