Technologically feasible, but practically the same effect
on luser reactions imho. Easier to blame the "network"
than doing anything else.

(aside)
You know 40 years ago they wanted a bigger faster Panama

for sea level access between the Atlantic and the Pacific.

That plan is "technologically feasible", but boy would the Guatemalaans
be pissed. ;-)
