Well, yes.  Obviously it is meant to highlight the roles of public
exchanges.  That much is obvious.  And given the source of the
production it would seem to be expected.  It did touch on private
interconnects although you're right to point out that it doesn't weigh
in on the pros and cons of public vs private peering, shared switch
fabric vs direct connections, etc.

But in a 5 min video, I wouldn't expect it to nor would I expect it to
be appropriate for its intended audience.  I didn't think this was
supposed to be a screen adaptation of Norton's peering whitepapers.
