I read your proposal an have a question. I assume that your MAE-west 
cache will act as a parent for the MW ISP's (otherwise, there's no data 
in the cache). That means that all outbound traffic from MW is routed 
through your cache, isn't it? That also means that e.g. all 
transatlantic traffic will flow through your lines. Or am I missing 

For our AMS-IX exchange in Amsterdam I would think that the best thing 
we could do is to connect all ISP's top level caches as neighbours, 
without a special AMS-IX parent cache. All ISP's connected have their 
own transatlantic lines...
