One /22 Two ISP no BGP

The rule with ARIN is that you only need to demonstrate that you WANT  
do do multihoming, not that you WILL do multihoming.

That question would be better asked on the ARIN policy mailing list.   
I'm also on that list.

That was cleared with ARIN as part of the process to get that /22

I guess ARIN rightly assumes that most ISPs do want to do BGP with  
their customers...
