Yeah. That's a good idea.

Maybe even just 404 (maybe faster than host unreachable) even when you
connect from an range they don't like, and make sure their client does Happy Eyeballs.

Users and/or he.net could find a way to (optionally!) blackhole route netflix
IPv6, but that may be very hard to maintain that list.
