customers don't care. How hard is it to get that? Customers care about one 
thing, that they can reach the content they want on Internet.

I tried quite hard to explain, even in a non-technical way, for my 
girlfriend yesterday what this issue really mean for her and everyone and 
her comment was "why should I care? Isn't it people like your's job to 
sort this out?

try the same excercise on randon non-technical people you all know and I'm 
quite sure you will all get the same reaction.
