Surely, the correct response should be to officially rescind the domain names, otherwise, if a legit site is blocked in a region, how is the webmaster supposed to know? And if we are talking global rather than regional, surely some sort of accountability is required. Indeed, the same could be said of regional blocking.
Then there's net-neutrality to consider. And on top of that, a new pseudo http response code will need to be agreed so that browsers don't just timeout or whatever. Oh yes, and browsers will have to be updated to understand that code and we all know how slowly changes to IE take place.
This seems to be a plan to force some sort of half-baked firewall on users without permission. If users could opt-in individually it might be possible to make a convincing case provided the authority in charge has sufficient funds to cover compensation claims when they get it wrong, but that's never going to happen.
