It **IS** a requirement of NSF - if you connect to any NAP, but not if 
you connect to MAE-East, the CIX, the GIX, the SWAB or the Dundalk 
Consolidated International Three Hundred Baud Interconnect (local reference).
The NSF-sponsored NAPs are the only places where we have the right to 
shape policy.
