You're assuming that the only way to be multi-homed is to have an 
ASN. That's not correct.

ARIN's fees are discriminatory; a small ISP must pay a much higher 
percentage of its revenues than a large one for IPs, ASNs, etc. 
Clever small ISPs find ways to work around that, and it makes them 
more competitive.
