Yes, you should just submit your request and see what happens.

If there isn't enough documentation or you filled out something
incorrectly, ARIN generally contacts you and explains what you
need to provide in order to justify your request. It is pretty
painless really. At worst, because your business model is out
of the ordinary, you might spend a week or two going back and
forth explaining things.
