Many months ago, it was explained to me in great detail why Sprint, et. al.,
liked peering at MFS exchange points (because MFS is a neutral party, ie. 
not an NSP) and didn't like hearing about exchange points run by NSPs or ISPs
(as some of the smaller regional points are).

Any comment from the larger NSPs about what this does to that theory?
