Socially, "once a customer, then a peer, then a customer 
again" is even more interesting yet.

The second instance of "customer" could rise during M&A 
situations, where an ISP Z peers with ISP A, but buys 
transit from ISP B. Then ISP A and ISP B decide to merge.

But I suppose this is certainly going way off-topic now :-).
