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.

Good 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.
