That doesn't matter.  What matters is if the geographically
limited providers contracted for transit with providers that touch
down in the area or not.  If yes, no problem.  If no, then we have
a dead zone and need to figure out how to get the routing working.

MCI is in the Bay Area.  I don't know what we'd do for Sura;
are they paying someone for generalized transit, or just peering?
