  1. Now here's something I can agree with
    <http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/09/15/oz_botnet_takedown_scheme/>:

    Australia is considering the adopting of a code that would oblige ISPs
    to contact, and in extreme cases perhaps even disconnect, customers with
    malware-infested computers.

    Practical? Dangers of "mission creep" (as mentioned in the article)?

  2. Looks like there'll be an RFC on this, covering identification and cleanup
    recommendations but not penalties
