It means it was allocated prior to the requirement of entering into a Registration Services Agreement.

Unlikely, but large amounts of money might help convince them. I suspect this approach isn't of interest however.

Not relevant. The applicable policy is quite clear: you need to "demonstrate need" for a /20, something that will be a bit challenging for you at this point.

No, that's a presentation that is providing information to the community regarding ARIN staff's experiences in implementing the policies the community has developed. One of the things Leslie (the head of registration services) was pointing out was that there were ... issues with existing policy.

I believe "prop 207" being referenced is https://www.arin.net/policy/proposals/ARIN_prop_207_orig.html.  I'm guessing Martin's concerns is that policy proposal is way more complicated than what you need.  What you appear to need is revising 4.3.2.1 of the NRPM to say /22 instead of /20.

To be honest, so far, you are seeing something approaching light speed in the RIR policy world.  IIUC, what some folks are suggesting is that the ARIN Board step in and modify policy to address this particular issue before the next ARIN meeting (in Bellevue, WA in early June).  This would be somewhat similar to tunneling through a wormhole...
