My understanding of it is that people who want to be at the datacenter just
for inter-customer communication can do so and be charged less then those
who want to purchase full transit.

In practice I don't know how many people actually do this (which limits
its usefulness greatly). I'd love for level3-southfield(detroit) to turn
into a place where local michigan people all drop a circuit into and
keep traffic out of chicago.
