Rate-limiting ICMP is 'ok' if you, as the provider, think its worthwhile

Would it be fair to say that UUNET haven't been asked by Homeland Security
to do the rate limiting that GLBX claim they have been asked to do?  Has
anyone else been asked to rate limit by the U.S. Department of Homeland

I have a different question, mostly directed to the likes of AT&T and
GlobalCrossing that came out with this fabulous explanation -

        (1) Did you get an order from DHS to do that or were you just asked?
        (2) How did DHS managed to not know about such order?
        (3) Are you going to bend over and do everything DHS politely asks
            you to do?
