Paid to whom?

Yes, it would be nice to put more backpressure on announcements to get
the size of the DFZ down.  But unless you can figure out how to get
the money from the people announcing the routes to the people actually
running the backbone routers, fees are just a way for providers to
extract more money from their customers.
