Even BGP is not a decentralised, democratic, peer-to-peer utopia. Routes 
are distributed down in a rather hierarchical fashion; effectively, an 
oligopoly of global Tier 1 backbone operators ends up the clearinghouse.

And the weaknesses and vulnerabilities in BGP to the extent that it IS a 
very large "circle of trust" - though, as I said, the degree to which 
this is actually true is frequently exaggerated - suggest it's not a 
great model to emulate for voice/multimedia sessions.
