Hello...I'm using *more* than a /20 right *now*.  If I had 100%
efficient utilization of the IP addresses that we're using *today* I
couldn't fit into just a /20.  I can't come up with *any* logic that
would make sense to renumber into a /20.  This information was clearly
spelled out on our application.  If the folks at ARIN are too dense to
add a few numbers together, you'd think they'd at least drop us an email
or a phone call and ask a question or two!  Sheesh!  There is *NO*
excuse for ARIN here, what they've done with us has *NO* rational
Have you called them to follow up? Each time I've dealt with them, I've found them to be helpful and reasonable. I think they have a LOT of requests. The onus is really on you to contact them. Give them a call. I think if you go out of your way to clearly state your case, you'll find they aren't so bad and they will give you what you need.
