We have been rate limiting ICMP for a long time, however, it is only recently that the percentage limit has been reached and people have started to see "packet loss" as a result. However, the fact that customers stay up and are not affected by the latest DOS attacks and real traffic makes it to the proper destination makes a slight increase in support calls well worth it.
