I think for me the push for having our own ARIN assigned address block
comes from avoiding dependence on the ISP that assigned them to you. If
we get a /24 from our primary ISP, and that ISP goes under or we switch
providers, we would need to re-IP our network as that block is only
sub-delegated to us via the ISP's delegation. For our case, this would
be trivial as we have relatively few devices but I didn't realize you
can get an ASN without your own IP block.

I don't think it matters who actually gave u the address block. Once u have
an autonomous system number that block should be independently routable from
anywhere on the internet. Both of ur ISP's will have to agree to accept ur
routes. Then it's ur responsibility to get ur router to propagate ur routes
out to them.
