Leggally speaking, as an ISP I'd be very reluctant to do
anything to "protect" clients without some sort of agreement and
making sure each of them knew the scope of what was being done.
Picking a level of "protection" that is unobtrusive to all
clients and just applying it means the ISP runs the risk of
someone getting clobbered and then suing the ISP: "But you said your
service was protected".
