I read this section differently from you. I'm not sure if my interpretation
was the intended one but I thought the $8k/year would also include the costs
of hardware and related licenses and support contracts. That is, $8k was for
the cost of routers, software licenses, vendor support and connectivity to
two or more other ASs.

Perhaps I misunderstood the intent.
