I am confused here.
If 2002-3 is giving out everything an ISP would get,
and would require nearly everything and ISP would have,
why not give membership?
IE an ISP I know in SC has a single /22, and an ASN.
and ONLY 1 upstream. They have membership.
Why would someone with a more complex Internet connection
not be afforded the same voting rights given to ISP A?
