i'm part of the cogent c-root team, and i was a co-founder of dns-oarc. 
we have hosted elements of the dns-oarc project at cogent before, and we 
are working with the dns-oarc engineering team to make our 
ipv6-addressed c-root server visible to their measurement systems.

when i succeeded dave rand as cto of abovenet in Y2K or so, we had a
completely open peering policy -- we even peered with customers, if they 
wanted a second BGP connection so they didn't have to pay by bit-volume 
when exchange traffic with our other customers. this made business sense 
to the company and its employees and investors and customers.

hurricane and cogent are also businesses, each having employees and 
investors and customers. they are each doing what makes sense to them. 
this is not a "peering war" by any stretch of the vocabulary. cogent 
does not have a completely open peering policy, and while hurricane has 
transit for its ipv4 network, it lacks transit for its ipv6 network.

their networks, their rules.
