WebHosting Policy approval recommendation

It should be grand-fathered in cases just as you described. We approve most
grand fathered allocations involving ISP moves. Exceptions to this occur,
but they normally involve a Customer having a (for example) /21 assigned yet
they are only currently occupying a /22. In the case where the
grand-fathered subnets have a significant portion unused, I think it is
reasonable and good netizen practice, to assign what is needed for the
renumbering (and an adequate amount for near-term growth) and then come back
and ask for more when it is needed...at that time however, technical
justification would have to be provided.

1) Will IP space that we've already assigned for IP-based web hosting be
justified as "grandfather-ed" if we approach ARIN for additional IP space?
New customer is coming from another ISP. Currently this customer has been
given x amount of space from their current provider for IP-based hosting.
The customer now wants an equivalent amount of IP space from us, stating
that they will be returning the space to their current provider.
Will this be an acceptable assignment?
