I would have no problem with allowing small consumers of IP addresses
to instruct the ISP to serve as his SWIP POC so long as the -default-
action was open publication. I don't see any compelling cause to deny
individuals consuming less than a /24 the right to retain their
privacy when they strongly desire to do so.

I wouldn't want to see it made a routine either-or decision, though.
Perhaps pair it with a dollar annual fee so that a customer who
doesn't care one way or the other participates in the SWIP system
instead of avoiding it.
