Agreed. There is a huge difference between a peice of software that requires a persistent or recurring connection to carry out it's function (like the examples that jibi has mentioned) and an application that is accessing the network for, what I would consider to be, non-functional reasons (heartbeat, checksum, etc.). If an app is utilizing the network to bring me the information that I have asked for, then great, otherwise stay off the damn radio.
