While I agree with your point, I have to say that compression (or, at
least, the concept of efficiency) will always matter.  Network
bandwidth, even when it becomes obscenely fast right to the home, is
something that should always be considered.  Once you take it for
granted, you'll find ways to overwhelm it.  It still has to flow through
the network(s) the servers reside on, for example, and there's a cost
associated with those pipes that's typically hidden to developers.
