 I don't think DDoS should be based on identifying humans.

 Bots are legitimate consumers of data as well, and in the future they
 might even be more intelligent that most humans today, so we might as well
 design our systems to be friendly for them.

 DDoS is a supply/demand type of economic issue and any solutions should
 treat it as such.
