I discussed this possibility a few weeks back, and it looks like it's now happening - the do-not-call list shifts marketers back to door-to-door sales.

Of course, it's also a tactic that's breathtaking in the sheer magnitude of it's stupidity.
It also begs the interesting question: is the business architecture of the US regressing both economically and strategically?
