I'm somewhat familiar with the concept :-)

But yes, this indeed is currently the only effective way to cause change
at the ISP level.  Ferg is very correct in that Change Is Coming at
the goverment level.  That is the wrong place for it to happen, but it
will also be very effective.

I'm hopeful that more networks will take it upon themselves to make it happen
before it is forced on them.
