I would argue the same for any/all security issues. If people would
just shut off $VALUE, we'd have a lot fewer problems on the network.
I will concede the problem is making it scale and viable for some

network a priority are dragging the average down.
VALUE = ( infected host ip/customer, route leaker/hijacker,
nonfiltering customer, ... )
