Guys this is no real argument, come on.
In such a change, MESS site would actually share the bandwidth.
Also nobody forces nobody download from the master servers.
Most modern sites that give out some important piece of software have alternative download sources.
There could be use of file sharing services. Most (if not all) Linux distros etc. come out as torrents too.
This thing about bandwidth is a non issue.
(because there is no real issue to be found maybe? :P)
