Yes, for me.  I want to pick a package that gives me reasonable bandwidth,
and then forget about it.  I don't mind notices along the way, but under
no circumstances do I want to go over the limit.  I don't want some external
ping flooder to add $2 to my bill.  It's the headache of yet another
thing to manage that I do not want.

Let me buy X gigs of bandwidth and leave it at that.  It's not the end of
the world if I happen to be offline for a few days at the end of the month.
There's lots of other stuff I can do. :-)
