If you qualify for IPv4 micro-allocation under current ARIN policies
(i.e. including for smaller /22 block) which is true about many legacy
smaller blocks, then there is a new policy (active and available for
use as of 15 days ago) that allows you to get IPv6 Micro-Allocation:

That is BTW what Bill Manning was referring to when he said ARIN is 
"making disruptive changes in general RIR policies"...
