I don't think the implications of full elimination of needs assessment are on topic for this thread. If anyone  believes that ARIN-2015-3 would allow organizations who do not operate a network and do not have any need for addresses to acquire them for speculative purposes, I think they are mistaken, so I would need to see a lot more justification to consider that as a valid last call objection to 2015-3. As Jason mentioned, this proposal relaxes needs requirements somewhat, but does not eliminate them.
