Yes, I confess that this reasonable use case had not occured to me, and
yes, it utterly negates what I was saying.

(I myself am the paranoid type, so I -do not- back up -any- of my stuff
or things to any storage which is not physically in a place where I
myself can lay hands on it.  Given all of the massive breaches that
have been in the news over the past few years, I'm just not comfortable
sending my data into the hands of others.  But other people are obviously
happy to do this, and who am I to tell them they shouldn't?  It is 100%
reasonable for end users to occasionally use a lot of outbound bandwidth.
Period.  I'm sorry that I wasted electrons suggesting otherwise.)
