Below is another bit of postscript I have thrown together.

It's a map of a backbone that Peter L. and I have been
telling people is a good idea for ICMnet, especially in
light of the possible disconnection of Asia-Pacific,
European, Latin American, African, and Carribbean
R&E networks from each other as a result of the
NSFNET transition. In such a situation, ICMnet could
potentially act as glue between the various R&E networks
around the world.

Is this the GIX-like proposal which suggests a layer-two bridge between
the East and West Coasts?

(Who should pay to connect, for example, Asia-Pacific and Europe?
Asia, Pacific and Europe? NSF? Donation by Sprint?)
