SFI = Settlement-Free Interconnect
(So SFI-Peering is Settlement-Free Interconnect-Peering :-)

ISPs generally feel strongly about their rights to decide for
themselves with which other ISPs they want to peer (settlement-free).

Proponents of new schemes should make it very clear that they won't
take this right away from ISPs, if they want buy-in from that
community.  Personally I think geographical addressing could lead to
better aggregation, even without imposing full interconnection
(settlement-free or not :-) within a geographic region.
