We have reviewed similar suggestions before. Fees are always complex because we need to recover costs in a fair and equitable manner. The current fee structure has tried to ensure there is simplicity and predictability while accomplishing this and we’ve had a lot of feedback that is important. Adjusting the schedule to account for this starts to complicate things both for users of our services and ARIN. 

With that in mind we have taken suggestions like this seriously in the past and give them serious deliberation. Look forward to seeing the discussion and input.
