Does anyone know of any non-ISP companies that have decided to
multi-home? Is this a major trend for non-ISP companies running
mission-critical applications on the Internet?  

So far, I only know of a couple, with PointCast being one of them.  

The Eli Lilly pharmaceutical corporation based here in Indanapolis
(www.lilly.com) is multihomed.  I would assume any corporation of this
scale which conducts worldwide research such as Lilly would place enough
value on their internet connectivity to obtain redundant connections.
