But then again APNIC and RIPE NCC both had last /8 policies in place, which has mitigated some of the impacts of

the end of their IPv4 address pool and not hold back any addresses for this "last chance" trickle feed, or have I 
missed something crucial in ARIN's policy handbook?

Nope, you are correct Geoff. There is a /10 reserved for transition
technologies (e.g. outside addresses on a CGN) and there is a
"critical infrastructure" reserve, but no general purpose reserve like
in RIPE and APNIC.
