A general incident response capability would be usefull, but unfortunately
this requires more cooperation than most companies are willing to give. 

Would it be worthwhile to include security incident handling policies
and procedures in peering agreements? i.e a peering agreement also 
includes a testable disaster recovery plan, and a security incident
response plan. 

It is fairly obvious by now that a peering agreement is more than simply 
an agreement on a router configuration. 

I'm wondering if anyone would consider something like this a little more
robust than the centralized CIRTs and industry associations, as it would
be relative to local policy, and the participants have a direct existing
relationship with each other. This, as opposed to dependance on a neutral
co-ordinating centre which may be dealing with other problems.
