  How does one carrier that gets DIDs from multiple other carriers
  communicate to the termination carrier selected during LCR that the DID
  set as CallerID is indeed serviced by that carrier and authorized to use
  said DID as CallerID?

  If a call is asynchronous, e.g. the DID carrier is not the terminating
  carrier, how can the termination carrier trust/know definitively that
  someone is allowed to use that CallerID?

  Don't forget the resellers!!!
