(1) I am not surprised
(2) It doesn't say _what_ the deal must be, only that ISPs have to
negotiate peering

The only addition is that the regulator can inject himself as a
mediator if the negotiation is going down the wrong path. It doesn't
say the peering has to happen, that it has to be for free or anything
like that.

The danger is that this is happening before regulators have clue about
what "a fair deal" is for IP.

Remember that ISP's outside of the US in WSIS has "required" fair
peering/transit costs for a year now, which the US objects officially.
