I think of it as akin to Amazon's moves in book-selling, including the Kindle business: leverage your market share to squeeze everyone else's margins and increase your own dominance.

There are clear benefits for 'consumers' in both price and ease of access, but there's a real price to pay in the decimation of local booksellers, small independent publishers, specific local cultures, and general homogenization.

I expect something similar will occur as a result of what Ray referred to as the trading industry's move toward 'consolidation.'
