Well, after all this, can we then get say to a point where we define like 
engineering guidelines. 
This exists in machine engineering and everywhere else. 

It would mean that certain types of access shouldbe designed in a certain 
manner, and also explain why and what the impacts are (see my earlier 
post, yes, everybody knows how to do this).

There are more points, not only this one: proxy agg, as path manipulation 

This way a provider has at least the chance to check if his design is 
'within the normal and customary'.

Since these things are no corporate secrets, how about giving it a corner 
on the merit web sites?

I still maintain that public complaint about something that is between 
providers, without (this is the point) constructive proposal of a 
solution, is public whining. Well, you all seem to accept and like this, 
we all have our views.
