[warning sub-operational]
what's cool is that andre found that there
is some natural `tiering' of ASes just according
to (almost any topological) quantitative connectivity metrics
	http://www.caida.org/~broido/bgp/asoutdeg.html
(math-heavy, no ASes identified, just illustrates that 
tiering has some sense manifested in real data, 
which i think is pretty cool)

	.... To be sure, mathematics can be extended to 
	any branch of knowledge, including economics, 
	provided the concepts are so clearly defined 
	as to permit accurate symbolic representation. 
	That is only another way of saying that in some 
	branches of discourse it is desirable to know
	what you are talking about.
