i don't know that it will be that easy.
surely, not all of china connects through a single AS.
87 ASes registered to china from whois records
(might be more by now, that's from old snapshot)
that doesn't include non-.cn ISPs with
customers in china...
it doesn't strike me as impossible to
write a virus (a la lion)
that could trigger to spread infection as soon
as it could tell that no chinese-based ASes
were reachable from it
(get the world to protect china with filters,
then release the toxins...)
so `protecting the Internet from china w AS filters'
information warfare policy
makes me a little nervous
maybe we could just really slow down all traffic headed there
oh wait we already do that
