I think it's a bit dangerous for us to try and make specific control/sanction mechanisms for governments.

I therefore propose to broaden this proposal up and not just include governments but everybody who takes away other's internet access on a large scale. I don't care that much if it's a government shutdown, a DDOS or a hijack. Why don't we refuse to give addresses to anyone who consciously takes away someone else's internet access? We might want to exclude entities that have to execute a court order, but otherwise...
