P2P Darknets to eclipse bandwidth management?

Interesting article, and something I think that will certainly
becaome an issue for ISPs. Is this a real issue ISPs are thinking
Via The Register:
Encrypted P2P networks will soon make bandwidth management based on deep packet inspection obsolete, says Staselog, a Finnish appliance outfit.
Around 80 per cent of all traffic in the Internet is already P2P. This traffic will increase 1,000-fold in the next five years and most of it will be encrypted P2P, according to a study by Staselog and researchers at Finnish Universities.
Overlooking the point that this kind of smells like a pitch for
Staselog, I'd be curious to hear of this is an issue on ISP
bandwidth management radar... or already is...
