This is more complicated than it seems, although part of that is 
definitely because the incumbents want it to be.

Still, see prior 2000s-era art on "federated domain peering policy 
control" and the like. Proceeding from the assumption that voice is a 
public utility and has regulatory involvement (e.g. public safety, civil 
emergencies), and not World of Warcraft, leads to the conclusion that 
some sort of systematic, integrated admission, egress and routing policy 
control is needed.

There hasn't been anything like industry-wide agreement as to what those 
things should be. Eventually someone like Inteliquent shows up and 
decides for you, with a view to their bottom line, of course.
