Christopher,
 This is pretty common policy.  Not many datacenters of any size is going to act differently.  If you don't purchase this service then you will not get the service.

 They may be willing work work with you on black-holing problem IPs though.  This is pretty common, but don't expect a filtering package without purchasing it.

Is it common in the industry for a colocation provider, when requested to put an egress ACL facing us such as:

  deny udp any a.b.c.d/24 eq 80

…to refuse and tell us we must subscribe to their managed DDOS product?
