We could get this information via sniffing our network.  We don't, but 
if we did, we would only do it in a manner that would completely 
protect the privacy of our customers.  

I think it would be naive to believe that this isn't happening 
somewhere today.  

Another interesting question than the intellectual property issue, is the
question of what a NSP/ISP might do with the statistics on proxy traffic --
the numbers on hits, bytes, etc -- and the usage profiles of individuals
using the proxy.

I think it is only a matter of time and opportunity before some ISPs would
begin to exploit revenue opportunities associated with this new gatekeeping
role, should it develop.
