Yes. However, if this subterfuge was noticed, the policy would give ARIN the capability to do something about it (if necessary), just like other ARIN policies.

I've been told ARIN has revoked address space for violation of policy.

My understanding of the policy proposal was that it was to apply to future allocations because the out-of-region requests appear to be increasing with the exhaustion of various RIR free pools.  Historically, it has been ... challenging to retroactively apply policy to pre-existing allocations.  If such retroactive application were desired (not going to comment one way or another on that aspect), I'd suggest it should be a different policy proposal.
