Here's a simple one involving "squat" space: You have a network that
internally is using *all* of 10.0.0.0/8 *and* 126.96.36.199/8 (because you
have enough customers to fill two /8s).
Now that 188.8.131.52/8 is being allocated, you need to move out of it (so
that your users can reach the real 184.108.40.206/8 sites).
Why wouldn't this be sufficient justification for a new /8 from ARIN?
Because you can probably use the other two 10/8's you already have.
And if thiose run out, a third 10/8 is cheap even on the secondary market.
