It should be law, period, as this is enough power to bring down online civilization as we know it if they ever wanted to do it.
Be careful when you ask for new laws Bill. Often new laws contain a certain amount of overkill and other agendas come into play that you might not know about, yet.
This attack should be a reminder that you need to have a bullet-proof cache system that serves static pages(with NO relying on SQL databases) and that fully takes advantage of browser cache too.
If your site is fat with addons and plugins and a beefy set of database tables that all have to do their thing on EVERY pageload then your site is as much of a problem as the spam email service. Even an poorly optimized cache system isn't good enough nowadays. Speed matters! (are you listening CMS creators?).
