If the importance of the traffic exchanged increases (eg increasing VoIP
peering), maybe provisioning two links for peering is a good idea.
The other thing that might be interesting to consider in some
environments (eg peering through a switched infrastructure) is faster
convergence. Pairing BFD with eBGP would enable much faster detection
of the loss of connectivity. Now seems like a good time to raise it.

I wonder if there is a need, when considering multimedia etc, to have
service specific metrics incl as the base arrangement. Would be expect
this would be more complex than straight QoS and BW arrangements.
Just a thought.
