Why don't you just resort to a bit-counting method that I suggested earlier
for settlement peering, and make the *SENDER* carry the traffic to the
'local' destination ?

That way, the sender has to build a large enough network to distribute its
traffic to the destination networks, without just presenting at one network
point and expecting destination networks to foot the inter-state / inter-country
traffic ..
