Implementation of the mechanisms for compliance is relatively
Depending on how scalable and/or automated the mechanisms are, the
certainly increases. However, I hardly agree that including these
in the design of the network hardware or architecture equates to the
of innovation or a 'devastating impact' on the Internet. Especially
compared to the alternative of providing an unfettered command & control
communications network for the miscreants.
