Thanks Jay.  Can you put it in a nutshell just in case others are a
little vague on the finer points of these arrangements and their
significance in the current content provider / network provider row?

The best thing about journalists is that they're always right (unless
they're writing about something you know about, in which case they seem
to always screw it up.)  I like how in this case the author declares
that "This is the new normal."
