That was the point. It's against their policy and they don't have any
mechs in place for reasonable requests within their policy framework. My
specific needs are irrelevant to the point and were only provided for
illustration purposes. If you can sweet talk a /24 out of them, more power
to you.

I have more addrs than I need. Your second guessing proves nothing.

There are a bunch of protocols and services that need fully-connected

But that's all beside the point. You can't get /24 from ARIN, and that's
the point.
