I'll give a few more hints as to what I'm looking for..
How about ethernet versus ATM? With VLANs and high speed such as
Gig/10Gig, I can get speed and one to many arrangements (at least for
lower speeds). Should Ethernet be point to point or optionally
multiaccess in nature?
Or, what about MPLS? With MPLS, service provider connections can be
established without concern for underlying media (e.g., ethernet,
Is Diff-Serv or ATM QoS a requirement or can 85-90% of requirements
be met with loss/latency service as the baseline?
What special arrangements should be made for hosting (e.g., local
caching or streamers)? Yes, I'm stretching here a bit.

What switching and/or service characteristics would you require
such that an exchange point would be desirable (e.g., media types,
switch fabric, route servers, multicast services, SLAs, ..)?
Kind of depends on what you want out of your exchange and who your
target marrket(s) are. Factor in budgets, (financial, space,
and you should have winnowed down the conceivable to the likely.
