Do I want to buy IP addresses?

Our company is switching ISP's in six months.  The new ISP is having me jump through hoops to get a class c, which my current ISP provides us.  During the switch, there will be a lot of updating, DNS, Firewall, IDS, etc.  

Is there any reason why I wouldn't want to buy a block of portable IP's from ARIN?  What are the pros and cons of that?  I already have an ASN, if that helps.

It's more expensive to buy IP's from ARIN but there are the obvious benefits, portability/provider independence being the big one.
