What's wrong with the current method?:

	1) Purchase 1 or more routers (your choice of mfgr., model, config)
	2) Establish peering at one or more NAPs/MAEs with more than 10 peers
		including at least two backbone providers
	3) If at the end of six months you
		a) still have the same set of initial peers
		b) have received one or more requests for peering which you
			have accepted

	4) Then you are a CIE. :-)
