People that are buying high level services should expect those to be delivered correctly, but those who are buying bit transport should not be required to obtain additional services to become fully functional. It is nice to fantasize that the ISP is in control, but time has shown that people will do what it takes to make their service work. If that means pushing the service provider into further irrelevance, they will. Rather than trying to break service for the antonymous network by requiring consent from the cabal, the service providers need to be making it easier and cheaper to get the desired results from their service.
