NANOG 24: NAP BoF

Get Bill M's call on it..... Tiering was his Idea.

  No. Vadim was the first person I heard talk about

  said argues for the concept of tiers in relation to
  exchanges.

Alas, I guess it doesn't really matter:

Oh foo. You mean we won't be treated to an argument about who is in Tier 0?

The first 17 providers who manage to get "Better than Tier-1" into their
promotional material, of course.
