...which would be interesting, except NDAs[1] and grandfathered-
in ASNs that don't meet the requirements, yet haven't been
depeered, might make things interesting...

[1] IANAL, but how can something public be considered a trade
    secret protected by NDA?  Perhaps the exact peering
    arrangements are not public, but routing information is at
    least semi-public.  (Any downstream can identify peers.  Or
    if a net participates in a route server a la oregon-ix, then
    they're pretty much disclosing interconnect lists.)
