If you're talking about hi-jacking the TCP connection, then you are correct.
How many ISPs use IPsec gateways and simple filtering with tools like IP filter? How scalable is this sort of thing? Could AOL do it with dozens or hundreds of OC-48 and OC-96 links? How long would it take to fix all the ISPs in the world that might potentially do transparent proxying of port 25? And where is the intelligence to selectively forward only those connections that are themselves encrypted and authenticated?If you're talking about commercially available product, perhaps.... However this kind of thing is trivial with basic IPsec gateways and simple filtering ala IP Filter, etc.
