This technique serves to help the packet kiddies achieve their goals.
Why not use the same technique to blackhole the relay networks?  Maybe
having their Internet access die a couple times would convince them to
fix their networks.

If I were an ISP, I think I'd have issues with allowing third parties to
blackhole traffic in my own network.  I don't think this does anything
to fix the political issues of inter-provider cooperation..  it just
provides an easier technical solution.
