Definition of transit

Am I the only one out there the thinks it is not ethical to point default
to a provider over a NAP without their permission? Just because someone
sells you transit does not give you the right to point default to them at
a NAP. Sure you can point default all day long over the connection you are
buying, but not over a NAP without their permission.

Noone's suggesting that it's ethical to point default at people without
their permission. But some large carriers DO allow people to pay for
that privelege, over the public exchanges - or point default from some
of their routers (owned by one subsidiary) to other of their routers.
