What if the people running the boxes are irresponsible, perhaps even harboring 
malicious intent

surely, you have an AUP? Then, null0 is your friend. 
I dont have control of all end nodes but I do control my edge.

So give up trying to control the actions of the end nodes by
destroying the edge. Make sure that complaints reach the correct
responsible person. Limit your involvement to careful excerpts from
your customer/IP-address database, or better yet, register them in
the RIR registry so that others having complaints can reach them
without wasting your time.
