Doesn't ECN depend on 'well behaved' traffic? In other words, wouldn't it
require the hosts sending traffic to slow down? So... even if the hosts
slowed down, 10,000 hosts still is a high traffic rate at the end point.
I suppose another basic but effective method of prevention would be
egress filtering. An increasing minority of network providers are
instituting it, but it doesn't seem like it will be a widespread thing
in the near-term.
