Every user?

"Home Affairs likes it that way, because it can record a one-to-one relationship between the ISP-assigned address and the account-holder's edge router."

For some reason I don't think every single user has a static IP.

I would be rather unhappy if Mr and Mrs Nasty plan some devious terror plot and watch bad things then both of us reload our home routers after which I obtain their old IP then the cops come kicking my door in on that basis.
