They have to be honest or face litigation. Transparency is the biggest (if not the only) useful thing out of the Open Internet Order.

"does no form of trickery" 

Therein lies the problem. Can we trust ISPs to be honest about not 
messing with our traffic? 

Kudos to you if you can say that with a straight face :-) 

Doesn't matter how many people actually have what we think is a 'valid' 
reason to do it. People have their reasons, may it be because of 
performance, or what they perceive as CDN issues, or just not trusting 
their provider.
