Note that in many/most cases, the person signing the agreement and paying
the bill (the parental units) are not the ones actually consuming the
bandwidth (the offspring).  The *consumer* of the bandwidth may very well
have a *very* good idea of exactly how many movies/albums they've pulled
down this month, and would much prefer if the bill-payer was totally in the
dark about it....
