You may find yourself taking on more liability than you'd want if you
provide any kind of phone service without regard to 911.. For example.
IF you have "users" on your network someone WILL at some time dial 911
on your network. What are you putting in your dialplan??

exten => 911,1,Congestion

I've actually seen this quite a bit and it really freaks me out:

exten => 911,1,Answer
exten => 911,2,Playback(were-sorry-no911)
exten => 911,3,Hangup
