here, nodes 2 and 4 have no reachability,
       1
     / |
   2   3  4
  / \   \/ \
 5   6  7   8

now, node 7 is reachable from 2 and its lower level nodes, but what
about
node 4 and 8, and as a typical case, suppose nodes 4 and 8 have no
multihoming whatsoever, what then?
If the verticial position on the page indicates some kind of hierarchy (e.g. 2 and 3 are transit customers of 1, 7 is a transit customer of 3 and 4) then 4 has transit customers but no peering or transit. I would suggest this is not indicative of a realistic business plan in the real network.
