The SLA's I've looked at promise me that if their service is hard down
for a week (with no ambiguity whatsoever) they'll credit my bill for
upwards of 2% of the $50k/year or so I spend on the Internet
connection for my mutli-million dollar online service.

So yeah, you're overthinking it. When they start coupling those SLAs
with some sort of serious business loss insurance, then paying
attention to the SLA and carefully examining what constitutes failure
may make some kind sense at a technical level.
