Now's your chance, the FCC just released a Notice of Inquiry, FCC 98-187,
"Inquiry Concerning the Deployment of Advanced Telecommunications 
Capabilities..." available in a variety of formats via

Take a look at paragraph 79:

  What can and should the Commission do to preserve efficient
  peering arrangements among Internet companies, especially in the face
  of consolidations of large proprietary gateways?  We ask for comment
  whether the Commission should monitor or have authority over 
  peering arrangements to assure that the public interest is served.

But be careful, commenting could be akin to opening "Pandora's Box"  ;-)
