notably, if a gov't decides to regulate a network owner (ISP or 
otherwise) under the banner of "fairness", you may see different 
regulation regimes in each country, you may see stuff like SOPA, and you 
will probably see anti-spam systems like RBL outlawed wherever the 
advertising industry has lobbyists.

so, let's be careful what we wish for. network neutrality sounds good 
but like "organic" these terms can be pirated by commercial interests 
until they no longer mean what the grass-roots community intended.
