This is the point I've been trying to make for over 24 hours but it would
seem that my comments are not being approved and sent to the list.

It is apparent by looking at any predominantly IPv6 Network that they have
to have more than one IP Transit provider that provides them with IPv6. I
believe it's as simple as allowing the two companies to generate Revenue
because you must connect either directly to both of them or to two partner
networks that they do buy Transit from.

Cogent and Hurricane Electric are not and never have been Tier 1 providers
they both have Transit provided through other carriers.

This is apparent simply by looking at the number of bgp peers that they
have and doing Traceroutes through their respective lookinglasses you can
tell that they must be purchasing Transit through other providers and last
time I checked networks that peer with each other do not provide free
transatlantic IP Transit nor do they provide Trans Pacific Transit without
charging for it.
