This will never happen.  There can never be an AUP involved in the allocation
of addresses.  Even the simple matter of "is this address block being used for
virtual web hosting and if so have all alternatives been explored?" was a huge
political headache.  Questions like "do other people actually want to receive
the traffic you want to send them?" would be utterly unanswerable (and for that
matter, unaskable) at the ICANN/ASO/IETF level.
