Except for slower connections that never happens.
Easily proven wrong: Stream any iTunes Radio audio

I wasn't talking about video
streaming with caching
and I'll agree that its characteristics can be as you've described. But in my experience Internet Radio streaming typically works as I've described, not utilizing more bandwidth/throughput/whatever-you-wanna-call-it than necessary.
Sorry I didn't make the type
of streaming more explicit in the beginning, though I did admit to not necessary using the most accurate terminology. And maybe what I've just written could be clearer but right now I don't care since I'm about to watch a movie with my wife before it gets too late.
