If transit was uniformly denied to every operator who was not equipped to deal with DDoS tracking in a timely manner, I think 90% of the Internet would disappear immediately.
This is not just an Asian problem.
(Incidentally, I think if one big player suddenly decided to throw away the millions of dollars of revenue they earn through providing transit to east Asian countries, the likely effect would be another grateful big player leaping in to take over. I don't see a future in which the well-being of users in other peoples' networks trumps income.)
