For the record, I doubt if there is clear support/strong participation in the 
discussion. It is still to early to call it a consensus.

(Speaking as a not-very-tech-savvy person) Depends on what exactly the 
community want to do. If we make use of CentralNotice's geo-targeting, it is 
very easy to implement a Taiwan-only blackout/site-notice/redirect-to-specific 
page etc. This involves no server side configuration change, volunteers will be 
able to get this done. The time consuming part is to write the banner and it's 
javascript, but that shouldn't take longer than a day of there is people 
willing to help.
