It is pretty common to get an ASN from ARIN while using PA IP space, never getting (or requesting) space from ARIN or other RIRs.Also, you're incorrect on the process. You can definitely get an ASNI find that fascinating. The ARIN template:
assignment template and still get the ASN. The ASN is a prerequisite to qualifying
under the multihoming end-user policy, so, yes, if you are starting from zero and
applying as an initial end-user, you can apply for an ASN with "none" as long as
you can demonstrate that you have contracts for service with at least two ISPs.
You can then use that ASN to apply for IP space under the multi-homed end-user
Of course, if you can show existing utilization of PA space, that becomes much
easier, because it is easier for ARIN to verify your utilization and requirements,
but, with sufficient appropriate documentation, you can apply without existing
IP space and get an ASN and an assignment.
