Sounds good.

That's strange because you just finished describing how 
SOME companies are already engaging in email peering on
a piecemeal basis. And how these companies ARE finding
this to be beneficial in reducing costs. So please explain
why my suggestion about widespread email peering agreements
won't work?

And please don't suggest that webs of trust are not 
scalable. Given the techniques of scaling that we have
in the 21st century, I simply don't believe that.
