Uh, not if it's buying transit.

Uh, Marty...  the difference between peering and transit is that they have 
different definitions.  If you say transit is peering, just not by our 
definitions, then you're into 1984 territory.

War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength.

For me, however, peering is peering, and transit is transit, and my world 
works better when I use words in accord with, rather than in contravention 
to, their definitions.
