Name a backbone which doesn't come into the San Francisco Bay Area.
This is the area I want to try the idea out in.  In terms of physical
touchdowns, they are all in place.  The only barrier is getting most
of the backbones to willingly participate in the experiment.

A very significant chunk of new domains and new ISPs are here,
in the 415/408/510 area code regions (and 707, which is next door
and could be included if we wanted...).
