Upvote for the vLAN names.

I'm thinking [1] of writing a firewall module for OpenWRT or similar that can be configured with the details of IoT devices and selectively buggers with their packets. So a connected telly will find that it can download the program guide perfectly, but when it tries to upload viewing statistics the packet contents get randomised, or sent in the wrong order etc.

[1] Which means I'll never find the time to learn how to do it, but I throw the idea out here in case anyone else wants to have a go. :-)
