does anyone know of a concise genealogy of providers 
since 1990  
(e.g., GTE + BBN begat GTE Internetworking; 
GTEI absorbed Genuity; GTE + BBN + Genuity + ... => Verizon;
by ASes even better but we can do the mappings if needed)

we're trying to integrate a little more semantic sanity
to presentations of macroscopic infrastructure growth over time
(notwithstanding the fact that semantic sanity in this 
space is a losing battle) and it would sure help to
have the metabolic process codified in a single source.

pointers muchly appreciated,
k
