justified for a non-ISP to multihome to multiple providers?
IMHO you do not need a justification. If you think multiple links to the same provider don't buy you what you need (e.g. if the ISP has severe problems with its internal network multiple links do not buy you anything. Same holds when your ISP goes south which still happens now and then these days) go for real multihoming.
