Yes, we're doggedly insisting that words mean what they're defined to 
mean, rather than the opposite.

Exactly.  "IX" as a component of a name is _intended to insinuate_ the 
availability of peering, _regardless of whether that's actually true or 
false_.  Which is why we keep analogizing to the STIX, which was _called_ 
an IX, but was _not_ an IX, in that it had nothing to do with peering, 
only with a single provider's commercial transit product.  The same is 
currently true throughout much of the Middle East.
