Good idea, not to mention that AAC and the Mpeg 4 codec is supposed to be all about internet broadcasting/streaming.

As a supplement to store-bought CDs I certainly hope that more exclusives/b-sides/alternate takes/remixes become available. This is still exclusively what I pirate, simply because I can't buy it legally. If I could click on the iTunes Music Store and find the Bigod 20 version of Photographic, I would definitely buy it. If all I can find is top hits then I'm not really interested.

How long do you/we think it will be until Apple automatically adds links into our libraries for the songs of a particular artist that we don't already own?

I'm thinking about how I own a bunch of Neil Young, but what am I missing? I can see Apple adding bold, red songs under Neil Young in my library that link to purchases of songs I don't have.

I'm not saying I like the idea, but I think I could see it happening.
