Owen,
   
  Clarify...  right now, many organizations with high-speed connections
  to the Internet pay based on usage (including traffic sent).  Doesn't
  anyone on a usage-sensitive leased-line connection pay based on the
  traffic regardless of the "legitimacy" of the hits received?  Isn't 
  this why we all hunt down SMURFers?
