er.. hate to rain on your parade but if I peer with everyone

my packets get to where they need to go and all packets I want
get to me. my life is good ... even if I only appear as vestigal

it does not have connectivity to substantially all other Internet
how would you classify such a network? T1, T2, ODDBALL-0,
