Fair enough. But given shared bandwidth needs shouldn't a node adapt. 
How quickly (if at all) does a node adapt to having less bandwidth than is
specified in the limits? How well does that work?

A list of IP blocks in CIDR notation. Which in turn is derived from
<a href="";>a
periodically updated list</a> - picking out my country gives my domestic
(zero bandwidth cost) IPs.

New Zealand. (Bang goes my anonymity). I think people (I use the word 
loosely) from Australia would have similar issues. And Spain. 

I watch (with envy) discussions on bandwidth and pricing and (sadly) I
think the world is moving more to caps (monthly limits) rather than open.
So I think that this is an area that Freenet should address at some time.
I'm biased of course. I'm also willing to help since I think you've
commented that you lack develoeprs living in a low bandwidth capped
environment. I don't know I can help much but the offer is there.
