In order to spur the development of more sophisticated
P2P protocols and encourage users to switch over to using
them. The net *IS* an ecosystem, after all.

Read up on eigentrust and "emergent behavior" and
"complex adaptive systems". The current crop of popular
P2P networks are quite crude and deserve to be killed
off in favor of more robust models.
