I wanted to point out this is a  semi-false premise.  If you were dependent on the resources, you would be pulling circuits or hosting those sites in-house.  I see this argument made about availability in an absolute sense and one can't control the entire ecosystem.

OpenDNS didn't just start charging enterprises because they could, they did it as a result of people realizing they were dependent on resources where they had no contractual relationship or SLA.
