> ... trying to even out a perceived inequity ...

peering is a business decision.  if it's possible to force another network
into the role of "customer", then that's seen by many as good business since
revenue increases.  "paid peering" or even "settlements" are not about
inequity, perceived or otherwise; rather, it's about not leaving money on
the table.
