Why not just talk to an established LIR, and request the addresses 
 through them? Since you won't hand out addresses to customers I don't 
 see the need for you to become a LIR yourself, you just need PI 
 address space. As a plus that would probably cost you less than
 becoming a RIPE member yourself.
