Back in the day the CW was that RIPE NCC was Ok with you requesting an allocation that would be used in other regions in addition to theirs (think large multinational corporations) assuming that you could justify the block; but that other RIRs required you to use the space strictly within their regions.

Each region has always had independent policy on this issue, and most regions have swung back and forth a few times.  Generally speaking, none of them are too hardass about it, because they all have large multinational members, who are active in policymaking.

One compromise that held sway in the ARIN region for a long time was that you could use your space anywhere, but you could only use space deployed in-region as justification for additional allocations.  But they didn’t care where you’d gotten that space.  Which is a reasonable compromise.  It kept speculators from other regions from coming in, snapping up space, using it all elsewhere, and coming back for more.
