I wonder how this relates to the prior work in the UK on data
*retention* (other than the obvious difference in access -- government
vs. private):

>From a more architectural perspective, it's a little troubling that
the focus seems to continue to be on ISPs (as it has been in the past
with data retention), rather than any sort of application-layer
entity.  If governments continue to craft laws without respect to the
layering model of the Internet, then there could be some long-term
risks to the health of the network.
