I think that anyone who already has purchased transit would like to know 
the nature of the underlying technology, e.g. is the transit provider 
using tunnels or is it dual stack/native? They might also want a way to 
signal so that their announcements are blocked from the transit. This 
probably applies in the peering case too as they may have a native 
peering elsewhere that they would want to use in preference to a tunnel 
based solution (where the MTU has been buggered up).
