as i just replied to a private message from an enterprise op,

  o backbone isps can not set their customers' security policy
    - some customers want to run billyware shares over the wan
      whether we advise it or not
    - some of us host security researchers, who have a taste
      for 445 and other nasty traffic

  o enterprise / site ops can set their users' security policies
    as that's part of their job and charter
