Interesting post! The challenges of incentives, service cost and billing federation are particularly thought provoking. There is space for some standards and protocols around that (e.g. "I'm a small cell operator and I charge X units per MB" where "units" could be USD or these HNTs you speak about) and some placement optimization algorithms by the large carriers ("I think I'll go with Bruce's small-cell because it's the most cost effective"). A win-win business environment, where everybody benefits: the end customer with better coverage, the large carriers, the small cell operators, and all the middlemen developing equipment and software to stitch this all together.
