Patrick's talking about consumer broadband access.  Such AUP stipulations 
are quite common.

I know and I would still argue that they are tantamount to extortion.

This is in no way 'tantamount to extortion'.  Folks can either accept the 
AUP, or choose not to enter into a contract for the service in question 
under those conditions; there is no compulsion or coercion to do so.

So the home user that want to run a server now has to pay for COLO
or pay the ISP for it commercial line that is delivered over the
same physical circuit for extra dollars which gets what?  Maybe a
upgraded SLA and maybe some static addresses.
