    The only government intervention I can imagine as being productive would
    be to mandate what the "Internet" is, and if someone is selling access to
    it, mandate that customers can demand a refund in case the "Internet
    Access" doesn't provide access to enough a big part of it in a well enough
    working manner.

    If two parties were both to lose enough money over cutting off peering,
    then perhaps they'd make sure there was a backup path that at least worked
    well enough to enable them to refuse to refund their respective customers.

    I see lots of problems with definitions in this model, but it's worked
    (for some definition of "worked") in other areas and it might work here as
    well.
