i'm not wedded to sender-pays or to receiver-pays. what i want is to end
the subsidies that have brought the internet economy this far. granted
that we couldn't have come to where we are in a free market, we can't get
on from here without a free market.
therefore the people transmitting and/or receiving packets are going to
have to pay, in micropayments of some kind or in variable rates through a
settlement-like feedback mechanism, for the bandwidth they cause others
to have to provision for.
