in my view, yes. there's a huge difference in how to get cooperation in
the two cases, but the first case is extraordinarily more common than
the second case, so two things are obvious:

1. if we can get preventative action in the first case, it'll make a big

2. policy for the first case will be a useful example when arguing the
second case.

many internet technical folks are willing to let perfection be the enemy
of good enough. not i.
