We are a tiny org with a tiny network in relation to say a fortune 1000 company.  We should never be approved for a /8 or a /16 or some resource that is way larger than we are.  

We should however, be approved for resources that match our size.  I think we are the ones who should determine if we need resources and not some arbitrary policy that ARIN tries to comply with.  ARINs job should only be to get us resources that matches our size and record it in the public database.  That is ARINs Mission.

Which is what is meant by "needs based" allocation if I am not mistaken.
