This line of thinking fits in nicely with the regular and continuing 
pattern of proposals for a Final Ultimate Solution to the Spam Problem 



More broadly, proposals for additions or changes to large-scale systems 
(and quite a few smaller-scale ones) have a very complex -- and often 
constantly varying -- dynamic, for achieving success.

The tendency is for proposals to assume an adoption model that is far 
too static and simplistic.

Modifying Internet services is a multi-player game and winning those is 
never trivial.
