Traffic flows will just happen there. Forget capacity planning. You'd have a hard time finding ISP's interested in that.

Look at it the other way though, it's a business opportunity - you can make money by attracting as much area-destined external traffic as possible and handing it off to correct intra-area ISP for that subscriber. The more the better, it's a potential revenue source. It's in your interest to be able to carry all the external traffic into the area that you can get.
Do you care from which upstream you get your connectivity from?  Do
you care whether it is Sprint, Level(3) or Cogent?  Apparently you
don't.  With your proposed you don't have much/any influence on the
way your packets take.
