What does the FCC and/or intercarrier compensation reform crowd mean, 
exactly, when they say "Virtual NXX?"

Is that some class of clever remote call forwarding schemes from a CO 
where the call between it and your rate center is rated LD by the ILEC, 
but which some call forwarding product manages to get around or mitigate 

Or does it refer to carriers picking up inbound calls at the LATA 
supertandems by carriers from rate centers in which they don't have 
direct end-office trunking and whose number blocks are not homed to the 
tandems (any tandems) to which the carrier is connected?  This was 
rather common during the dialup boom and often skirted the 
'DS1-of-consistent-usage = DEOT needed' requirement in most form ICAs, 
as I understand it.
