Denial of service is an earmark of primitive technology. You can fill
a communication channel, assuming you're allowed to (and you can afford it).
You attempt to send a noxious stimulus (goatse on steroids), assuming
you're allowed to. There are no buffers to overrun nor bugs to exploit
(because of time limits everything is done in hardware, and shallow
gate depth, using transmission medium for FIFO -- how do you do a buffer
overrun on vacuum?).

Similiar applies for the hardware. Because of the speed limits you
have your pathways directly traced on on molecular hardware. You can
no more DoS than than you could a dog.
