While this may sound good in ideal circumstances, the reality is that everything has costs, and traffic shaping is -way- cheaper that "building out the network". I worked in IT for a bit during university on campus, and without traffic shaping most HTTP would have been unusable during peak hours. We had two options, try and disallow popular file sharing completely or just limit it, and the best solution for everyone involved was the limiting.
