All this implies something which I've heard banking types mention "off the record" which is that each bank has looked at how much of it's "mark to market" now looks like "mark to fantasy." Knowing that "the chaps over there in Bank X are pretty much like us" that means they guess Bank X has a similar level of "mark to fantasy" and so the everyone wants a bigger risk premium on loaned money.
