"Would Mario be any more fun if you can see each and every pore and pimple on his face?"

More power doesnt have to mean more realism. More power means that you have more options on tap, and have to make less compromises. More particles, more dynamic lighting, larger maps, more enemies are all what comes with more power, not just more detail. Until we can simulate reality down the particle, more power will continue to add fidelity and depth to the experience. Saying its 'good enough' only shows that you have stopped trying to imagine more.

"your downloads are not realtime-sensitive"

How in the hell do you know what my network is doing? More than anything else i take exception with the idea that only defined realtime services are given priority. What is to stop everyone from making their traffic look like VOIP? Again, your bits are no more important than my bits.

"Driving is an integral freedom of society"
Citation please.
We long ago decided that the Freedom of Travel clause in no way applies to how we regulate roads. What you are missing is there will come an inflection point where people with automated cars will demand we stop letting human drivers on the road with them for the inevitable accidents they cause. Every rage driver, or hot rodder is going to stick out like a sore thumb. What you fail to understand that at some point the ROAD will control your car, not itself. The Roadmaster computer will decided how fast you go, what turns you make to get where you want to go. It will intelligently route cars to avoid congestion. IT will take routes humans never would and still be faster. Its coming, much faster than you would ever imagine.
