+1 for this capability in CPE.

OTOH, it will be of no use whatsoever to the user.  Providing the user 
with access to anomalous traffic feeds won't help, either.

Users aren't going to call in some third-party service/support company, 

It call comes down to the network operator, one way or another.  There's 
no separation in the public mind of 'my network' from 'the Internet' 
that is analogous to the separation between 'the power company' and 'the 
electrical wiring in my house/apartment' (and even in that space, the 
conceptual separation often isn't present).
