Most transit contracts only guarantee packet delivery to the edge of their own networks. I'm pretty sure Cogent is doing that. (Hell, they have lots of spare capacity now. :)
Most also have a clause to cover the inter-AS links, making sure that they are not overloaded.

I think the word "most" is probably an overstatement. I'd be surprised if more than a "few" did.
