There are many other costs and technical requirements to be a TPIA provider.  The scenario that you have given, although entirely possible, is highly unlikely and would be extremely cost prohibitive on the provider.

It isn't likely to happen.

Wait, let me do the math. So if I have 50 customers in one neighborhood (one node) and -nothing- anywhere else in the cable operator's 1000 node region, I have to provision a /16 so that each node can have a /26 and each of my 50 customers can use a single dynamic IP address?

This is the behavior ARIN is asked to facilitate?
