I never said such.

ARIN absolutely did have a de facto policy to that effect
*under a previous administration* at ARIN.   And I have
heard that from a large number of other operators in the
(now historic) timeframe that I spoke about.  One of the
issues operators had during that (historic) timeframe was
a visible difference between public statements by ARIN
and the actual as-implemented policies that an operator
needed to follow to obtain address space to service new

I accept at face value your assertion that the currently
implemented policies are as you state them to be.
