I do not believe your CEO is mistaken. I also do not believe you have missed 
an announcement. But I do believe (with good cause and information) that the 
rumor of impending peering charging policies is real and imminent.  Due to 
some non-disclosure issues I can say no more.  Take your CEO's advice and 
follow up on it. des

Subject:  peering charges?

Curious thing, the CEO of my company called me the other
day and was worried about who we were peering with.
It seems someone put a bug in his ear that the larger 
providers were about to start charging some of the smaller
providers for bilateral peering.  

I haven't heard anything about that at all... so either
a) the ceo is mistaken
b) I've missed some important annoucement recently

either is possible.

Has anyone else heard anything about this?
