The problem is the state isn't specifying that ISP's provide some software
module that the state wrote to accomplish this, instead what they are doing
is telling a transport provider they must provide something other than
transport, they must provide some unspecified piece of software.

It's like if parents required the state provide some piece of hardware to
prevent kids from speeding in their cars because the state provides the
roads.
