P.S. And if multicast is in use, or unicast or some othercast, that is from my point of view part of the "innovation" the ISPs have to do (and will do) to ensure that the production cost is as low as possible so that their margin is maximized.

I actually see a bit of a problem here as multicast would lower the usage of links, as such, they can't charge as much as with link that is saturated with unicasted packets. Thus to lower the use in the internal network one would use multicast, but the client would then still have to get unicast so that for every listener they are actually paying...
