This argument absolutely bogus.

Google Maps, for example, is a way richer client than, say, MapQuest but 
consumes a fraction of the bandwidth, because using the web in a more 
architecturally consistent way, it can take advantage of the browser (or 
local proxy) caches.

If you were to deliver a mapping applications to, say, schools in 
africa, which one would you use, MapQuest (where every click is a new 
120Kb gif file) or GMaps (where there is virtually no traffic generated 
at all after the initial load... which, for normally, can be consumed by 
a local transparent proxy)?
