Just one of the many loopholes in my simplistic outline, and the most difficult thing of all about regulating 'the Internet.'
So, would prefacing my outline with 'In the USA, this could be done for that portion of 'the Internet' provider infrastructure within the jurisdiction of the USA' close that hole to a degree? (not really)  
Like I said, I am not touching the definition of the 'complete Internet' (and I even left a clue to this hole in that line).
