Bill sez:  A US Internet "backbone" is one which connects to ALL the 
NAP/MAEs in the US.  Not just two.  All of them.

Bill:  what backbone would that be?  I am unaware that there is any 
single backbone that meets those criteria. Is your point that there is no 
single US internet backbone?  if so, why not just say so?
