Hi Heather,

Read it in context. The draft replaces only one of five paragraphs in
section 4.4. The paragraph replaced and its replacement address only
IXPs, not other providers of critical infrastructure.


Nevertheless, would your objection be solved if "All others" was
replaced with "All other IXPs"?
