It would seem that as ISPs implement DPI and protocol-specific traffic

have "common carrier" status with the inherent immunities that status
provides.  I can hear the argument now: if an ISP can throttle
BitTorrent (or whatever) for specific nodes, why can't they also limit
the source addresses of packets coming from those nodes?

        They can and should.  I suspect many of them do as they
       usually apply these filters to home networks.

       BCP 38 is ~10 years old now.  It should have been factored
       into the purchasing decision of all the current equipement.
       If it wasn't then the operator was negligent.


BCP 38 isn't a license, it's a technique.
