You bring some definitely interesting points here.

I agree with your 1) and 2), but 3) rises some technical concern

3.1.2.) e-mail Alias and Web-Interface
Additionally providers should provide e-mail aliases for the IP
addresses of their customers (eg. customer at 127.0.0.1 can be reached
via 127.0.0.1@xxxxxxxxxxxx) or a web interface with similiar
functionality. The latter should be provided when dynamically assigned
IP addresses are used for which an additional timestamp is required.


could be a really good idea, if not so easy to use for spammers or even for virii. The moment you setup such a service, spammers/virus coder will write a script that can reach every single user with an active connexion. It's a really major drawback I think.
