not really.  It's still somewhat of a strange conception to me why
peopel would be interested in listening to hours and hours of crappy
commercials interrupted with one or two (mostly crappy, too) songs in
between, if they have a choice to listen to their collection of .ogg
(and patent-encumbered .mp3) files.

Also, I currently don't know what effects this has on things like FCC

Furthermore, some countries have some kind of levy-based scheme for
funding the public broadcasting companies.  This means that they would
have to pay extra money for a device that has FM radio capabilities.
