How many buyers out there have SLAs which cover inter-provider/domain

How many sellers are willing to guarantee this level of connectivity
to their customers with a SLA?

How many peering contracts are worth the paper they're printed on, and
have teeth when subjected to attorney review, and none of the usual
30-90 day unilateral severability nonsense?

Therein lies your problem.
