The network neutrality "issue" was invented by AT&T. There was no discussion until Whiteacre announced that he would like to charge Google etc. for access to his customers. Of course, at the time, there was absolutely nothing stopping him from doing that, except that it would have been commercial suicide -- so AT&T never did. Network Neutrality, as in the end-to-end principle is just good engineering, because it means you don't have to do anything to the network to use it in new ways. Just modularity, nothing more, nothing less. We should all be in favour of it because it's good engineering. Having a regulatory body enforce this good engineering practice will do more damage, in terms of restricting how the network can be used, than abandoning it would, not that it is at all likely to be abandoned anyway.
