      Of course not. :)  What I refer to here are ISPs that for better or
      worse have decided to stick it out with provider space.

      Of course, this parallels your funding-wg statement that they would pay
      $500 for it, as a non-member, unless we at IPhil give them one or 
      "resell". :)

      Well I hope to be an IX pioneer then. :)

      Of course it would be in my best interest not to advertise the competitor
      to the rest of the net.

      That was what I was asking; in any case I believe these private
      ASNs will be filtered out by the big providers, no?
