if $250/y seems like a good price, then why don't you:

1. register a RIPE LIR (2021 cost: €825/y)
2. get GUA PI assignments for each user and pass on charges of €50/y
3. add markup to cover costs

If you have anything more than a trivial number of address holders, then 
the mark-up should be small and the overall charge per assignment should 
be significantly less than $250/y.

E.g. if you had 50 assignees, the costs would be < €70 per annum, and 
whatever amount of time it took.

+ no need for new number registry, going outside the GUA space, filter 
problems, etc.
