ISP's  allocate IP addresses for use by other networks, therefore they

from an LIR/ISP,
so it makes sense for LIR/sISPs to definitely be members.

End users don't allocate number resources for other networks.  They
just obtain resources for their own use -- their requirement for
resources based on just their network.

It certainly makes sense, that it could be more expensive on a
per-resource basis to be an End user, and go to ARIN,  in some cases,
for a small amount of resources.

So  I don't see your examples as a bug, but a feature.

But if concerned about it...

Perhaps the ARIN membership  cost to be full member and have voting
rights; instead of being a $500/Year,  extra fee  for just end users,
 should be a fee of whatever amount is required  on top of the
resource,  transfer, allocation fees  during the year (for both end
users and ISPs),  to bring the total annual amount to a minimum of
$1400  to initially establish membership, and $1200 a year thereafter
to maintain membership.

If the ISP or end user pays $1200 or more for resource maintenance, or holds
allocations/transfers  that will have that,  then no extra cost every
year to maintain their membership.
