	In the few places I've participated in, this type of data
	is often considered confidential between parties. In some
	locations, like LINX, publication of this type of data is
	considered as part of the service. It really depends on the
	exchange operator and the participants at that exchange.
	That being said, there are a number of good efforts to debate
	discuss and publish data on this topic.  Ren (Onyx) and WBN
	(Equinix) are fairly active in this arena. In fact, I think WBN 
	will be hosting yet another peering BOF/pannel at the next
	NANOG mtg.
