One will allow no, not allow, it will obligate the policing of content

Most (if not all) ISPs want the protections afforded by "Common Carrier" status, but not the obligations.

Common Carrier status grants immunity from liability for the content in exchange for carrying all content on a non-discriminatory basis. ISPs want the immunity from liability even when they control the content.
