I don't think there is anything ARIN can reasonably do to require that
3X-Small ISPs have fewer than 250 customers. However, I'll note that even
3X-Small ISPs probably wants to grow their business, eventually moving them
into the 2X-Small ISP category. Once they have something like 150 to 200
customers they should be able to justify an additional /24 moving them into
the 2X-Small ISP category. Further, even for an ISP with 150 to 200
customers the additional $250 in ARIN fees annually shouldn't be a
significant roadblock to their growth. So, I think the natural incentives
for the growth of their business will be sufficient to regulate this issue,
and I don't think we need to micromanage this issue through policy.
