I have had two different Cogent telespammers cold-call me about this 
within the last month. Neither seemed to grok the concept of peering, 
why one should pay a third party for it, or how their product differed 
from (partial?) transport.

Neither could provide a link to a Cogent website or provide a document 
that detailed this offering. Neither called me back as promised with 
more information or to clarify exactly what they were selling.

As far as I can tell it's a marketing gimmick of some kind being 
promoted by telemarketers who don't know how to spell BGP.
