Yes, and the current peering requirements are enough to keep most small
ISPs from growing. I am spending 10s of thousands a month over what I need
to spend just because people want to see full DS3 network. I can
understand people would want me to be at all NAPs, but why should I need
10X the bandwidth I need for my customers?

Well, my guess would be that if you don't have a DS3 backbone, why
would the big guys want to peer with you anyway?  If you don't need
that much bandwidth (or don't have it) odds are you don't have enough
customers for the big guys to want to peer with you.  The DS3 backbone
requirement is just a nicer way of saying that (and it is a
quantifiable level).
