Without the need to disturb Jason Bourne, in Europe you can buy prepaid
sim-cards that are activated instantly anywhere, and cell-phones normally do
have a bit of power in the battery so that you can turn them on right away when
you buy them.
In Sweden the same applies to most broadband connections in residential areas
(we have fiber optics all over the cities): when I moved in into my apartment
all I had to do was to connect the laptop to the socket in the wall, open my
browser and select the operator I wanted to use and the bandwidth I wanted...
the connection was up and running in about 15 minutes.
To reverse your argument. wouldn´t you rather have mobile phones and internet
connections activated instantly like domain names, if you had a choice?
There is absolutely no reason to make the user experience worse to stop domain
tasting, where there are better and less intrusive systems to achieve the same
result... No need to shoot yourself in the foot when it itches, don´t you think?

In the Bourne Ultimatum Jason Bourne buys a prepaid cell phone in a train
station. It was activated instantly. I think AT&T calls them "Go Phones".
