You're seriously arguing that the customer should get special
consideration because they don't have time to put together and present the
required documentation necessary for ARIN to determine that an allocation
is justified?

Talk about chutzpah...

Re: SWIPs. Your question was a bit vague, but if you're asking if the
address space your customer is currently using needs to be SWIPed to
them (or demonstrated in some sort of public WHOIS database), yes. If
you're referring to something else, you'll have to be more detailed in
your question.
