There is no need for altruism, for the next 100 years we still have block 
In actual fact, fees are a tiny part of the miners income. (on BCC)

As this was your starting point, the rest of your logical argument stops 
making sense.

What my original proposal suggests is to provide to people a better quality 
of service, to provide to customers a more predictable and more fair (only 
systemic abusers are disadvantaged) inclusion policy.
This *may* cost some fee income (again, just a small percentage of income), 
but the benefits are quite big for the entire ecosystem which as a result 
will most likely grow even faster.
