To be clear, the change in the Revised Fee schedule is revenue neutral;
please review the slides referenced earlier for additional information.

Actually, we could easily go to a single fee for all ISP regardless of 
size. This would result in significantly higher fees for smaller ISPs
(as the per-ISP fee would approximately $2800 per year.)  This does not 
seem to be the right direction if we're trying not to burden smaller ISPs.
