If the GPS can do indoor GPS without assistance (which is what the site seems 
to suggest, to me anyway) were are still better off than with a similar GPS 
only chip that has neither indoor nor AGPS features, right?

If it won't do that, the chip is rather useless to me.

There's no way in hell I'm gonna *pay* someone to constantly know where I 
am ;)

Agreed, if you pay for the traffic, they better do not interfere with it. The 
telcos being common carriers could even get into major trouble for doing 
that, let's just hope network neutrality is being upheld...
