I would think this would be suitable justification for most any provider , if I were you I would email several companies that you like their server specs and network and ask if they can fill your needs. You might not want to check with the super huge companies as they might not be flexible enough to do it.
If justification is required and they don't know what you're using them for, they can't justify them without simply "guessing or assuming" and THAT my friends will get your IPs revoked if I'm not mistaken. At the least it will get ARIN breathing down your neck with very little sympathy.

It won't get your current allocation revoked, but it will make it very difficult to get any future allocations. You need to have very good documentation of what each IP address in your allocation is being used for in order to get additional allocations from ARIN.

Originally posted by garp74 Erm, you can give your customers an initial block of address space based on the "25% / 50% rule".
Your customers need to demonstrate a need for 25% of the requested space right away, and provide you projections showing they're going to use 50% of the requested space within one year.
The 80% rule is only for additional block of addresses from the same customer.
that is good to know.
most of us providers however get a little more strict than that since we like to get additional allocations with no hassle and when the provider has everything done very strictly - arin is usually pretty quick - when things are not done - it can be ugly.
I think what this customner is looking for is readily doable by most providers here.
