It occurs to me that operators might want to opt-in to have their data  
published through PeeringDB.  From a purely pragmatic standpoint, I won’t  
peer with anyone I can’t reach out to and if you don’t have a 24/7 NOC  
chances are good that you’re going to get depeered the first time there’s a  
technical issue and I can’t reach you for help.

An academic exercise, for sure.   But one that would render this line of  
thinking rather moot.
