I doubt most administrators care about the difference. The concern
would be if such a module becomes a standard part of most servers, it
would effectively take all static IP TOR routers out of the web and
subsequently affecting the desirability of using TOR, wouldn't it?

I can't wait until IPv6 finally becomes widespread.

On another note, Tor is big and getting bigger.  Plus there are a
number of Tor nodes that are on dynamic IPs.  Blocking them all is
going to become more and more painful.
