While not happening at scale at this time, we might have to consider
some measures to deter cyberwarfare if it escalates to that. And this
is not done by revoking IP addresses or TLDs, but by shutting down
actual network ports.

As long as the war keeps being kinetic and information/propaganda, the
network is probably a better part of the solution.
