As I noted elsewhere I think, you should see the one star ratings for the 4.25GB XCode download in the Mac App Store. It's just not practical for a huge portion of the world population.

Consider the bandwidth needed for not only Lion but probably for FCPX as well. As Apple adds more large file downloads, especially highly popular ones, to the Mac App Store, there's the potential for many points of failure.

Since FCPX is coming before Lion, perhaps we are the guinea pigs. When Lion lunches our FCPX installs thing of the added stress of downloading that again after downloading Lion. Thing of all those people who have the speed but have data caps as well.

They have to have a safety net. Even the best tightrope walker may fall once in a while. They can't allow it to be fatal. Some Clouds may be storm clouds after all.
