Stickers emerge as EU's weapon against dud IoT security

Would it not make sense to have the IOT devices use a non routable protocol and have a house gateway for this sh.... stuff?

We could then tailor the gateway to our requirements for cost, security, features and as the non routable stuff is hidden, non update-able items can be tolerated as long as the gateway locks them down to a limited set of instructions.

To me the error is in considering a device that does one or two things needs to be able to get to the rest of the world, directly.
