 From my point of view:

- I'll bet it's not the same price
- We'd still need to invest as it wouldn't GUARANTEE that all the 
peering routes we see are clean
- So we'd need to pay more for transit, get rid of our peering and 
international network
- We'd need to be able to have our legal responsibility back-to-backed 
with the upstream.

So, at least from an economic point of view, it'd still be a poor result.
