Does the bank actually need that information?  Or does there need to
be a way for the two providers to do conflict detection between their
design layout groups?  You don't need copies of all provider's fiber
maps to do conflict detection for a particular group of circuits.

I think - as both of you both know, this has little to do with security
vs. being a savvy network consumer and asking for what you need to make
your purchase. Be careful with the hyperbole, you'll create a new box or
something.
