LIRs/ISPs should not be involved in this.

I would suggest a stance that IPv6 should be used for any new non-
connected networks being created And applicants be required to prove
that they have adequate justification for why they have existing IPv4 usage
and it is not possible to meet their unique  Non-Connected networking
needs using IPv6 space  and  technology such as 464XLAT, and why
it is also impractical to meet their requirement using RFC1918 space.

If someone's use is so transient as to merit leasing,  then perhaps ARIN
could consider offering a process for providing a  90-day allocation
from a block reserved for transient allocations for experimental use.

Yes...  Non-Connected = A standalone IP network, or it might be part of
a confederation of  interconnected networks,   but they choose: for
whatever reason  to not be globally reachable directly over the IP protocol.

If the Non-connected network is truly standalone,  then RFC1918 space
should be adequate.
