If part of your business was public interconnects why would you want to
help private interconnects? I think you are right though, at the
Atlanta-NAP we wanted to draw some of the big players, and one of the ways
to do this was to let them do private interconnects over the gigaswitch of
cascade 500 and then let them peer with people if they wanted to.
