Originally, the space was used for some rather specialized connectivity services. Due to changes in the market and the legal environment, those services became less lucrative and the organization pivoted.
Hardly any organization that has been in this business for more than 10 years is using every address they have for the exact purpose for which it was approved.
None the less, delegating addresses to customers for their legitimate use as unique internet addresses remains the primary purpose of any IR whether it be regional, national, or local.
There exists no requirement in policy that such delegations involve connectivity services. In fact, no RIR provides connectivity services to any of the organizations it issues addresses to.
Certainly, if such a requirement were intended, it could have been written into the policy.
