I hadn't thought about that as a feature. As release candidate the features are supposed to be set. But I can look into it.
I thought that had been the difference at the outset, regarding "we're not requiring that you obtain a paid MaxMind database."
Since the GeoIP2 Anonymous IP Database
requires paid access.
Or are you thinking of leveraging the informal observation of "if the address block isn't attributed to a country in the free countries database, it's because its part of something which might be a VPN or proxy."
i.e. We can't confirm what the address actually is (because that would require the Anonymous IP Database), but we could allow to "restrict this address because it doesn't appear in the country database"
, which probably blocks VPNs, proxies and maybe some other things.
Isn't that something the extension already does
? i.e. When control was introduced for what action should be taken for an "unknown" address, in database terms?
