Re: if the owner of MAE-EAST can drop me a note....

MAE-East participants are not required to make any particular sort of agreements (or, in fact, any agreements at all); its all bilateral agreements of what ever form the parties involved come up with. Most of the MAE-East peering agreements that I know about are of the 'no settlements' form, but I am not privy to all of the agreements, so there may be some that involve settlements of one sort or another. I am aware of some folks on MAE-East that peer with everybody else. I am aware of some folks on MAE-East that peer with just a few others and explicately do not peer with some (typically for traffic engineering issues).
