Well, that's not quite true. If it's only one or two and they
don't filter their own customers, an ISP can simply get a T1 to everyone
who filters and keep their small blocks working.
If that became a popular plan, it would be an incentive for large
providers to filter as aggressively as they could get away with, to
force more people to buy connectivity. Before long it would no longer
be viable to run a T1 to every such backbone.
