Really?

This is a question?

You're a terminating, or 'eyeball', network if the preponderance of your
customers are end-users, resi or biz.  Small-biz networks that are single
uplink count here, yes.

You're a transit network, if the preponderance of your customers are
other networks, including larger business networks that are or might
become multi-homed.  In short, if the plurality of your customers have
an ASN.

I don't even make a living at this, and I didn't have a problem with this
definition...
