Most users of X do not want or need network transparency.
People keep on saying this, but I don't know where the heck the figure comes from. Every single user of X I have ever known has relied upon network transparency (often they were scientific users, running huge mathematical monsters on beefy remote systems).
I know I couldn't get my daily work done without X transparency. I don't presume to know whether this is true of others, but the people who claim that I am a very rare case presume to know that with just as little data to back them up.
