Transit over the MFS meet points as a product?

  • From: Chris A. Icide

Rumor has it that MFS is planning to release a "product" that
will provide an official way to provide transit through their
meet points.  From what I've heard, it will be offered through
MFS meet point customers current interfaces.

Anyone have any thoughts on this?  

I had some thoughts myself:

	If this happens, will MFS attempt to police the meet point
and force anyone who is currently providing "transit" to purchase
and user this "product"?

	Will it change/worsen the performance of the heavier traffic
sites by "stealing" customers from the larger traffic sources, and
then dumping traffic upon those already overloaded circuits making
the HoLB problem all the worse?

	Does anyone really care whether or not transit is sold over
the MFS meet points, and if so, what are the operation concerns?
