Well, the purpose of a network is whatever its proprietor deems it to 
be, and makes no false advertising about it.

A private enterprise network that carries a company's internal traffic - 
which may or may not interface with an external network that is 
interested in some or all of that traffic - would, in your eyes, be 
classified as not neutral, because it chooses not to use its network to 
provide global IP Transit?

In my mind, the word "transit" refers to carriage between two 
non-homogeneous points. So network A (customer) will talk to network C 
(content) via my network B (transit). If the traffic originates either 
from A or C, BUT terminates/ends inside of B, I do not consider that 

I'm unaware of content operators who run their own network and (promise 
to) provide connectivity between A and C.
