I believe there would be significant interest in a debate on the relative 
merits of Peering and Transit oriented connectivity strategies.  The vast 
majority of operators rely at least partially on transit arrangements with 
'upstream' providers, with many hoping to eventually transition (npi) to a 
robust set of peering relationships.  There are many technical and business 
issues surrounding this topic, which is evolving rapidly over time as the 
NAP environment changes.  A deep exploration of the issues involving 
presenters from a variety of perspectives would benefit everyone, 
regardless of their chosen Approach.
