Where does it say that?
So - if the ISP includes a /29 in the monthly rental of a service but
the customer asks for, needs and can justify a /26 of address space, the
ISP can't charge him extra for it?
What about a PtP tunnel system, where the customer buys a tunnel service
that needs four IPv4 addresses? I'd see that as a legitimate business.
