Huh. Now there's an idea. What if LIRs were required to refer the
approval process for blocks of 256 or more addresses to ARIN?
Grandfather for existing delegations but make it so the maximum size
block a LIR could independently approve is a /25. Then if the end
user, having met ARIN's burden, wanted to lease instead of buy then so
be it?

Strictly spitballing here. I don't know that I'd support such a
proposal but I want to throw it out there for discussion.
