A bunch of us are thinking about multihoming solutions for IPv6. For this
purpose, it is useful to know a bit more about how actual networks (rather
than the ones existing only as ASCII drawings) interconnect. So:

- What are the 12 - 18 most important interconnect locations in the world?
  MAE East, the Ameritech, Sprint and PacBell NAPs, PAIX, LINX and AMS-IX
  come to mind, but from where I'm sitting it's hard to judge whether
  others are important or marginal.

- To how many of them do typical tier-1 and tier-2 networks connect?

- Using private or public interconnects?
