Most if not all European operators today force rewrite or blocking of DNS lookups. Belgium added a fairly large site today. There is virtually no way that this can be contained just inside a country. This problem is waaaay beyond root-servers, China etc. Filtering on the net is becoming common, and was pushed quite hard for at Interent Governance Forum last week. By Interpol and MPAA.
