    Have you kept in your mind that this may be changed in future? I know,
    we are talking in NANOG, but ... Some regions works on Internet
    development a bit faster than US and in future, this regulation may
    motivate some overseas players to stop peering in US. For example LINX
    and AMS-IX are good place to get peering in EU.
