The changes implemented in ARIN-2014-13, specifically the removal of 188.8.131.52, appear to have removed the multi-homing justification for a /24 for end users. Previously, the need to multi-home, and proof of contracts with multiple upstream providers, was sufficient to justify a /24 to participate in BGP.
For reassignments from ISPs, the language remains in 184.108.40.206. Users can justify a /24 via a requirement to multi-home rather than utilization rate. However this revision appears to leave utilization rate as the only criterion for direct end-user assignments.
Was this the intent or possibly an overlooked side effect of the change?
