The real question is, would the endpoints be willing to shun each other 
not based on the other endpoint, but complacency of the endpoint's 
provider. I believe such traffic changes would quickly find themselves 
to "net-neutrality" lawsuits.

 From things I've seen in the past, it is appropriate to say "my server, 
my rules" but not appropriate to say "my network, my rules". ie, if I 
wanted to shape/block/alter p2p, block vontage, etc.
