the fact is that we have reached the point where the constituent components of these vested interests (political parties, companies, quangoes and other bodies....) cannot serve the vested interests bydecreasingusage.
While I believe this is largely true (at least I hope it is true!), there will certainly be times when particular powerful interests will want to decrease usage in some fashion, probably by freezing out "troublemakers" of some sort. And the WikiLeaks episode suggests that it will be easy for them to do so.
