Not withstanding the legality of such an order, how would one 
operationally enforce that order?  Does this order force carriers into 
transparent proxy so that L7 filtering can be done?  Is the carrier also 
required to go through geolocator matching any given IP address with 
'Minnesota' so that the filtering can be selectively applied?
