Interesting. Looks like there was no such discussion for the client
subnet draft on that topic which after a quick read looks to fulfil
similar needs. So you never know.

And you know that the IETF not standardising it doesn't mean it won't
get implemented. Also the implementations of e.g parental controls are
usually opt in services, so it's the same (I would say better as your
ISP usually is in your jurisdiction) deal as allowing the web services
of the world to store my cookies and execute code on my host.

So long
