If one gets PI space from ARIN for their network, then moves the servers to a rack at a data center (still using the space efficiently), will most colocation providers announce this space for them, or would most providers
require them to take allocated space from them?

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 space
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 too.
