BGP might be "good enough" if there were enough peering points.
But peering is a business decision, and perhaps vulnerable to an
"inverse tragedy of the commons" approach. How little can you
get away with before customers leave? Why peer when you
hopefully can force a sale here or there?
Wars of attrition can be interesting.
