This is less than clear, and largely dependent on a specific
organization's [in]ability to function if their internets go down.
End-site multihoming in some form or fashion is a growing requirement,
and folk thinking otherwise need to get their heads out of sand.

If anything, these recent de-peerings underscore the lack of wisdom in
end users connecting to (or purchasing CDN services from) members
of the tier 1 club directly.
