A much greater motivation for changing the protocols is the SPAM factor,
which is attributed to one faulty O/S which can be pwned and commandeered as
it already does. This gives a compelling reason to make the Web a far less
convenient place for interaction. Net neutrality might be part of it, but I
suspect that videos and torrents play a major role as well.

Slightly (well, very much) off-topic: my newsserver has been dropping
messages for several hours last night. If I don't reply to particular
messages, this might be because I cannot see them. It's really frustrating
when the happens...
