I am not saying tasting is a free speech thing, but I do see it
as something currently legal, and don't see a way to make it a
crime without adversely effecting the rest of the system.

It is perfectly legal, and no viable remedies are known other than making it
illegal.

The other option is to let the tasters and fast flushers continue unabated
until it impacts service to such an extent that public outcry forces the
government to step in.

Seems to be a classic anarchy v democracy issue, with Arin firmly seated,
on their hands, in the anarchy camp.

Though the core issues seem to be same as those behind arin's handling of
the ipv6 transition.

Attaching a cost seemingly could add a deterrent without needing to
make it illegal.
