Sounds like an opportunity for some competing provider if you ask me,
though as you say:

Was there not once upon a time there was a proposal to require cable-cos
to provide what would effectively be layer-2 service to any IP provider?
I think that requirement still stands in Canada, but until newer
standards-compliant cable modems become more common it's "hard" to do
and so nobody's doing it yet (and there is some whining on both sides).
