In Asia, there is a popular, but incorrectly named product offering
that many ISPs sell called "domestic transit" which they sell
for price $X; for "full routes" you often pay $2X-$3X.  I grind my
teeth every time I hear it, since "transit" doesn't mean "to select
parts of the internet" in most people's eyes.  It's really a paid
peering offering, but no matter how much I try to correct people,
the habit of calling it "domestic transit" still persists.  :(
