Bill Woodcock and KC were movers/shakers behind that movement.
Randy Bush also contributed some w/ this queries on measurement/mgmt
on the nanog list a couple months back.

Many of the smaller exchanges that I am aware of put up a mgmt station
and collect mrtg data off the attached interfaces of the participants.
A smaller group use rtfm and even less use the NLANR tools (OC3mon
I expect that there is a significant use fo cflowd data by ISPs that 
attach to exchanges, but I don't expect it to be published outside a
need-to-know scope.
