 I think (ok, know) that it's more a question of keeping the number
 of available end-user products to a working minimum, and more important,
 to make them  easy to understand. A parallell would be the old system
 design saying "optimize for the common case". All ISPs would rush
 multi-IP leases to ADSL users iff the common case was end-users
 with servers at home.

 So, for ISP:s, the most customer satisfaction with the smallest working
 number of products, more income.
