So this works just great if 99% of the ISPs are participating.
How well does this work if only 25% are participating? They just cut
themselves off from the 75% of the non-participants....
This is known as a "bootstrap problem" - any scheme that provides a negative
benefit until an overwhelming majority deploy it will not deploy in the real
world, because no provider wants to take the hit of being in the first 10%,
or 25%, or 60% of sites to deploy....
