Getting back on-topic - how can this be? I thought only service providers
(with downstream customers) could get PI v6 space. Isn't this what policy
proposal 2005-1 is about? Can someone (from ARIN?) explain the current
policy?
Its my understanding that large company (or large university) can
become LIR too - they'd have to show that they have complex network
infrastructure with multiple semi-independent departments and/or subsidiaries with main company's IT department serving as network
provider for those units.

However there is a difference between company becoming LIR and becoming member of ARIN and paying annual membership fee (based on network size) and company applying for single IPv6 assignment (as per 2005-1) and not having to pay membership fee then (only one-time fee for assignment) and not being able to participate at ARIN as a member.
