And I want a pony.

What the upstream "wants" and what market forces will decide could be 
very different.  And as customers "want" lower internet access costs, if 
Comcast can collect more money from upstreams then they can lower the 
rates for customers, gain more customers, and be in an even better 
position to squeeze money out of upstreams.
