Also, you're incorrect on the process.  You can definitely get an ASN

I find that fascinating.  The ARIN template:
12. Indicate all IP address blocks currently in use in
   your network.
You fill in "none" and ARIN has given you an ASN?  Under what conditions?
If you have no IP space in use, what do you plan to do with an ASN? It is pretty common to get an ASN from ARIN while using PA IP space, never getting (or requesting) space from ARIN or other RIRs.
