This is the section at

That section applies only to _allocations_, which are what ISPs get. 
The maintenance fee for _assignments_, which is what end users orgs get,
has always been $100/yr.  No waiver is necessary, and AFAIK the BoT has
made never made any noises about increasing the assignment maintenance fee.

And, really, even if the fee for your /48 (X-small category) assignment
maintenance fee went up to $1250/yr to match the current allocation
maintenance fee table, would that really be "significant" in the grand
scheme of things?
