#1 - You will not get everybody to run open wireless APs.  Most people
recognize the insecurities and potential harmful consequences of that.

#2 - So you are suggesting we should make things more difficult for
police to track down pedophiles, people launching DDOS, spammers, etc?
 Make it yet more convenient for these people to further hide their
activities?

Inconvenience is sometimes necessary to maintain a free society.  Crackers will get on your network whether you want them to or not. How about if someone gets onto your "secure" network and launches a Denial of Service attack on the DoD, by your rationale the authorities would throw your ass in jail because it came from your ip. Is that fair?
