I think the biggest problem are content-based throttling programs that some
ISPs use - they can detect the protocol from the data sent in a connection
and then throttle more if they detect P2P. This becomes much harder to do
when encryption is set up properly.

Of course, with encryption it also becomes pretty much impossible for the
ISP to determine what you're transferring.
