The proper solution is for all these companies to form a consortium. The 
consortium would run the NAP and contract with multiple NSP's for 
service. In that case, the NSP's are not providing transit to 
non-customers because the consortium is the customer and every ISP who 
joins the consortium gets multihoming reliability outside the region.
