Sure, allow me to connect the dots. 

1.  The existence of common "peering" relationships can be attributed to
    the lack of any standard basis for a transaction in the Internet
    environment. 


2.  The existence of nTH percentile billing can be attributed to the lack
    of any standard basis for a transaction in the Internet environment. 


Therefore: 

1.  The PSI/CW scenario is a relfection of an inequitable
    relationship. Stand in awe of the effeciency. 

2.  nTH percentile billing is a reflection of a hierarchy of inequitable
    relationships. 


At least, thats my opinion.

James
