In fact, this is technically feasible right now with IPv4. Does anyone know
of a pair of ISPs doing this?
"technically feasible" and "business case reasonable" are two different things.

Under what conditions does this sort of cooperation with a competitor make sense?
As a customer, I would prefer to multi-home between ISPs who rarely talk to each other rather than those who are in collusion. From a technical perspective I want the operator-induced failures in each ISP to be as independent as possible; from the business perspective I want them both to fight for my money.
