This is about how does one define Transit provider vs ISP ?

Just curious to see if there are agreed upon definitions 
from the network operators's point of view.

Different parts of the same company? ;-)  Maybe transit is
transit *only* and no individual end users.  Their end users
are networks with business networks attached only.   But, 
then individual end users have business networks in their 
home, too.  So, blurry at best.
