Yeah, but you wont have many customers, or keep them if you inflict that
much pain, I'm well known for being pretty anal about security policies,
but not even I would contemplate that on a commercial (isp/web-host)
scale, on corporate LAN, there will also always be one who wont support
it, and its likely going to be the CEO's mobile device hah.

Which reminds me, if the OP is interested in knowing how many and who
wants it, they could always email the NSA ans GCHQ, if your American,
Brittish, or your data traverses the US or UK, they I'm sure will have a
record of who ;)
