So what is left as monetary BCP38 compliance pressure?

Regulators: If in the physical world the commons get damaged  
regulators step in. I hope industry will act itself before this happens.

Claims: "You knew BCP 38 countermeasures were available since May  
2000, you did not deploy, now people are abusing the net, you are  
negligent" You better pay me for downtime of service. It all depends  
on the cost/benefits for those that sue and get sued. We should get  
BCP38 in insurance policies.

Reminds me of seatbelts.
