Do we have any conclusive evidence indicating that the observed web
page defacing and the like actually originated from China? 

Though even if so, it seems a bit infantile to blackhole an entire
continent over this recent nonsense, plus long-standing political
differences (falsely assuming for a moment that we all have border
routers capable of performing such ingress filtering without falling
to the floor, policies allowing it, etc...)  Especially since there
have been no really crippling network attacks even launched from China
thus far...
