Depending on your value for "small", wouldn't the minimum traffic
requirements for a major network peering relationship stymie this process?
95th percentile for 100-200 mb/s is one thing, 95th for 2-3 gb/s is very
different [provider - provider peering, not total capacity].

Maybe I am overestimating peering coordinators here, but I'd like to think I
know a few, and more than a few hundred mb/s of DDOS traffic has got to show
up somewhere on the radar.
