RE: FBI tells the public to call their ISP for help
Let me buy an appliance that handles that DNS/filtering/firewalling/updating/etc for owned machines, one that has MSFT's blessing, and that just requires policy-based routing and handing out special DNS server IPs.

It works for institutional license holders, but not for public ISPs. Small ISPs without legions of lawyers may not worry about stuff like this, but unfortunately large ISPs have too. Its not a technical issue. If the Microsoft lawyers said ok, the engineers could come up with lots of ways to do this. I asked Microsoft's lawyers multiple times. But as always, you should consult with your own legal advisor. I keep hoping one day Microsoft will announce something like WSUS for ISPs. But its been several years.
