Yes Bevan.   I said before you incorrectly asserted that because P2P DPI
and caching is doable that it suddenly is easy to classify the CONTENT
according moral standards.
P2P DPI and caching doesn't have to do nearly the same work.

Again MMC - you are putting words in my mouth.  I said that it would be
quite capable of intercepting a 'flow' and assess whether that portion
of flow is on the 'list'.  I wasn't saying you should intercept the
flow, reconstruct it get some intelligent software to consider it's
classification based on the number of flesh colored pixels and moaning.
Are you suggesting that with the current P2P caching systems out there
they can't determine the file (or portion thereof) from the flows so it
can provide a locally cached copy of it?  Seriously?  Then how does a
P2P caching system work?  It just inserts some locally cached content
randomly in the hope that it's the same as being sought?  Of course not.
Based upon flows it can identify what is actually being transmitted and
then it substitute it's local copy.


The difference here MMC is that it doesn't CLASSIFY the CONTENT, it
IDENTIFIES the FILE and checks it against a list.
