I have done this several times for NA orgs with global sites with ARIN and for EU orgs with global sites with RIPE.

ARIN were fine, RIPE just excluded any non-RIPE governed locations from the calculation criteria, however they were granted on all counts.

At a previous company my pi assigment request included our overseas sites. the bulk of the assignment and the business unit making the request were based in north america. resulting request was for a /43.
