I concur, and I specifically would like to see a lot more *geographically*
local peering, so packets from Roar Runner[1] Tampa Bay to FiOS Tampa Bay don't 
have to clog up an exchang point in Reston or Dallas; this stuff *will* 
eventually bite us in another Katrina-scale event.

[1]Roar Runner was a typo, but given most of what the Internet is used for
these days[2], it's so funny I'm going to leave it in.
