The good news about a DillTorrent solution is that at least the user and ISP
interests are aligned; there's no reason for the ISP to have the guru lie to
the users (because you just know someone'll try it). However, it does
require considerable trust from the users that it will actually lead to a
better experience, rather than just cost-saving at their expense.

And as with any client-side solution, if you can write a client that listens
to it and behaves differently you can write one that pretends to listen:-)
