Because they can already hit that .1% of the 'net already without
peering with that smaller provider through that smaller provider's
transit provider and peering:
1) Enables them to screw you up a little more than they otherwise could
2) Provides them with free 'transit' across your backbone (even if it's
to/from your customers) if the peer isn't multiple-exchange-point
connected to some of the exchanges you are.
3) Has those political 'what is a peer' problems also.
