One of the reasons I initiated the (now stalled) PayFile project was in
anticipation of this problem:
At some point if you want to actually download and validate the full block
chain from scratch, you will have to start paying for it I'm sure.
In the meantime:
1. Getting headers-first implemented and rolled out everywhere would
reduce the amount of redundant downloading and hopefully reduce transmit
2. Implementing chain pruning would allow people to control upload
bandwidth consumption by reducing the amount of disk storage they allow.
