No, not at all.

For example, CDN (N stands for a network) operators may rely on
neutral transit providers to connect their CDN to access/retail

But, I certainly mean that CDN operators should not request
peering directly to access/retail ISPs merely because they have
their own transit, because the transit is not at all neutral.
