The problem isn't that which networks don't peer with each other it is
that some networks don't buy transit from anyone. That is what
causes partition related outages and distortions in peering policies.
If regulation could be part of the 'solution' then that would be the place to start.
But despite the flaws with the current environment it really isn't that bad and any regulation would likely be a disaster for the industry.
