The gene pool needed some chlorine anyhow, but this is a creative approach. :)

But seriously - would this be significantly different than the model that
many ISPs already use, where "consumer" connections get port 25 blocked, no
servers allowed, etc, and "business grade" skip those restrictions?  Or are
you saying that ISPs should go *further* in blocking stuff, and use the
resulting support savings to lower the consumer grade price point?

Only big stumbling block is what percent of customers will be willing to
skip file-sharing networks and online games that use oddball ports? Any
ideas there?
