It is ARIN's practice to assign number resources to organizations,
not individuals.

At a minimum, NRPM 2.6 ("End-user" definition) would need to be 
changed to recognize IP address assignments to individuals - 

"2.6 An end-user is an organization receiving assignments of IP 
     addresses exclusively for use in its operational networks."
