Why it's ugly?. Imagine that You've built a LAN to provide this
service to customers (each PC is a separate customer, service is LAN). But all LAN has
no L3 switches to cut off some customer that didn't pay for the
service.

How do you plan to cut off customers in debts?

See above. I do not want to firewall some server! I have a sevice -
LAN connection, and I want to cut off some users that have debts
(There is a hardware solution - just unplug them from the switch, but
I'm seeking for software solution)
