I wouldn't worry if I were you. I'll wager you $100 that pretty much all
of the people requesting a block from ARIN under this policy (or any
other) is going to go for a /24 (or larger). There is some precedent;
RIPE policy has not mandated a minimum assignment size for IPv4 PI, at
least not in the last decade, yet the NCC has made almost no assignments
smaller than /24.
