If you feel you should qualify as an LIR,

With RIPE, an LIR is simply an organization that pays the membership
fee and thus gets to submit requests for address space and AS
numbers. ARIN doesn't seem to use this terminology except in their
IPv6 address allocation policy.

That's what we were talking about. Shim6 and IPv6. The term
LIR is used in IPv6 allocation policy in all regions and refers
to an entity that assigns /48 blocks to its subscribers. Such
an entity can receive a /32 from ARIN or RIPE or APNIC or LACNIC
No, a LIR has the privilege of paying their RIR a fee. Wether they can get a /32 is another matter.
