How well will that defense work when you've got a half-million customers 
flooding your support desk because the hot new website of the day (MySpace, 
YouTube, etc) is on ULA-C space and you're blocking it -- but your 
competitors aren't?  Users couldn't care less about RFCs; all they know is 
your ISP sucks because they can't get to "the entire Internet".
