Ummm...correct me if I am wrong, but isn't transit usually defined as
being given explicit permission to send any and all traffic to the party
from whom transit is being bought? You mean ISP X who buys transit
from NSP Y can't point default at them? Why not? Isn't that what they are
Or did you get confused and really mean that NSP X shouldn't be providing
transit over a public exchange point? As Alex pointed out, it was only as
a last resort that transit traffic would flow over the XP.
