Not all ISPs need to do it.  Only your ISP and the ISPs that host mailing 
lists that you subscribe to.

If you are interested in this then the best thing you can do is to build 
yourself a kernel with osf and try it out.  If it works well create a Debian 
kernel-patch package for it so that other Debian users can conveniently use 
it.  The more accessible you make this to Debian people the closer it comes 
to being installed on Debian list servers...
