guarantee routability.  I believe that a semi-connected network, for ARIN
purposes, should qualify just like a connected network.  The fact that their
routes do not need to appear in the global routing table is a convenience
and benefit for the operational community, but, not really an issue for 
ARIN.

$100/yr, exactly correct.  As to semi-connected, it may or may not.
Depends on the nature of their "semi-connection".

And, it might be possible to reduce that somewhat, too.

Cool... I suspect that will happen before the policy comes out of the AC.
