I am highly confused now.

We have the 25% utilization check which really is the only verifiable
check to rate-limit aggressively optimistic requests.

On one hand, ARIN does not check this figure.  As such the policy
change is a no-op.

On the other hand the 25% utilization goal remains part of the
policy and having no intention of complying is fraud.

ARIN could make random checks, or check all of them.

Jason -

   Are you referring to assignments or transfers?  The above discussion
   appears to mix requests of both types.

   ARIN does check that end-user _assignment_ requests meet the
   25% immediate utilization requirement (as called for in the end-user
   assignment policy.)

   ARIN does not have clear guidance how the assignment criteria for
   25% immediate use is to be applied to transfers.  ARIN can apply the
   criteria with respect to transfer requests, but that would require some
   additional policy clarity from the community to do so.

So in that respect the policy change is not a no-op.

   The policy change will not materially affected transfer requests, as noted
   above.  The change would effect processing of any end-user assignments
   requests.  (It is probably worth noting that end-users who presently qualify
   for assignment of an IPv4 block are being added to a waiting list with a
   rather low probability of timely fulfillment.)
