No, interfering with the prices a registrant charges its customers is
way out of bounds. It would be out of bounds in the RSA let alone in
the policy documents.

If you want to go this route, here's how you write the policy:

LIR-assigned number resources employed by an end user with a routing
policy in which the LIR is not the primary network service provider
handling the majority of the end user's associated network traffic do
not count toward the LIR's efficient utilization of addresses.

It's not great but at least it's in-scope for number policy.
