The rationale stated in past threads is that Verio's customers pay for this 
service.  Non-customers are not paying Verio for anything therefore they do 
not choose to accept the more specific announcements from other providers.  

Other providers have not taken this stance as shown by the list of those
that accept more specifics from peers.
