I don't know about "most", but every one I've asked has done it.
You might need to sign an LOA.
Is it a reasonable alternative to establish a BGP connection with the
provider over ethernet?
It is technical feasible, but I don't think 'reasonable'. Stub ASes
are pollution on the 'Net.
But that doesn't stop some people.
Is this ok per ARINs requirements, assuming you first acquired this
under their multihomed network guidelines?
That I do not know, but would guess "no". (I would also guess they
won't notice. =)
Of course, if the space is /20 or more, you qualify under other rules
