Yes, I can see where you're coming from with this argument. We supply
ADSL to our clients and could offer them security on a network level.
I know some mobile operators already do this on their networks on
IPV4. Basically, if I want remote access to a machine connected to the
internet via their network I have to apply for permission to have the
security removed. The contract states that I know what I'm doing and
will take full responsibility for anything that goes wrong on my side.
They're basically covered legally (if one could call it that) if
something goes wrong with my connection.

We have some measures in place where we block, at a client's request,
all ports except 23, 25, 80, 110 and 443. So, I'm sure many other
ISP's could do the same thing?
