But has that actually happened anywhere? It seems as though we've had the example of alternate websites that eventually entered into production, but I don't know of anyone who's done what you propose.

Actually there's a third option, DNS whitelisting, and IMO that works quite well but I think there are relatively few websites with enough weight to justify the effort to build the system, and to get ISPs participating. Really needs to be a kind of web empire in order to make it worthwhile ;)
