Sounds like you're targetting individuals whom you do not trust to  
make an informed choice.

I know that there are whole schools of philosophy reliant on the "we  
know better what is good for the average man so we have to keep the  
tempations away from him" but I don't subscribe to that.

You accuse Jochen of having an "ideological commitment to market  
competition", but is your idea that the general population is too  
stupid to decide for themselves whether they want to use the "free"  
data or the "non-free" competition product any less ideological?
