Better alternative Rich.  Do the research.
It'll probably be on the agenda of the ITU-T
blockchain workshop.  There is already
ongoing ETSI work.

As to the FCC, the reality is different.
We're not in not alt-truth mode on this.

http://thehill.com/policy/technology/317854-fcc-suspends-probes-of-telecommunications-firms

The new FCC chair was an outspoken critic
of the Commission's TCPA activism.  The
era of consumer protection expansion is
dead in Washington.  The major carriers
are not going to rush into the FCC and
say "regulate me" and be forced to
incur costs in implementing STIR, when
those calls produce revenue, and many
business users want to avail themselves
of anonymous robo-calling.

If consumers want to stop robo-calls,
they need to set up their own call blocking.

Times are a'changing....
