The 'free lunch' syndrome is one in which, historically, the service

drawn policy lines where this is not the case, and in some instances,
will no longer entertain peering relationships without economic
incentive. The syndrome is one in which those who are directly or
indirectly affected complain bitterly that they feel they are being
unfairly discriminated against and that such activities are restraining
their ability to run a business.
Paul seems to be saying there is the possibility of a market solution to
"the routers will fall over" problem.
