Ummm...correct me if I am wrong, but isn't transit usually defined as being given explicit permission to send any and all traffic to the party from whom transit is being bought? You mean ISP X who buys transit from NSP Y can't point default at them? Why not? Isn't that what they are paying for? Or did you get confused and really mean that NSP X shouldn't be providing transit over a public exchange point? As Alex pointed out, it was only as a last resort that transit traffic would flow over the XP. pbd -- "Seems she thought of me as some mystic, fatalistic, mystical guru Me, I haven't got a clue." -- Tears for Fears, "Cold"
