While that's not enough to attract me over the uncapped rate, I know that fully half of my neighbors, relatives, inlaws, kinfolk, friends and associates would benefit from this offering. A lucky few have dirt-cheap dry-loop DSL circuits.
What's wrong with allowing the consumer to make up his own mind, rather than having the angry mob shout down and take away cheaper options, just because they disapprove of the concept?
This isn't about making overage bucks. Its pitching to the 30% of the customer base that doesn't spend their life online.
Its true, that over time, basic usage levels will rise, even for the 30%, but the ISPs will adjust their caps accordingly, to keep the business.

For the 30%, its more than plenty.
I know its hard to believe inside the DSLR forum bubble, but there is a whole world of people who don't use their computer but one day a week, or less; they don't download, they don't play online games, they don't watch streaming video.
