ARIN does not require you or your customers to use NAT.

If you have customers, you are an ISP and need an allocation.

SWIP everything you do.

Produce a common format form that must be completed before any addresses 
are assigned to anyone. On this your fortitude will be tested without end.

Justifiable, documented and responsible utilization is rewarded with 
additional resources (for the next 1-4 years), so give your customers 
what they can document their need for.
