The inconvenience for a high-bandwidth user of having to wait a little longer for the update to complete is minor compared to someone on dialup having to spend hours updating (or days, if they've just installed and are unaware of yum-presto), or someone with bandwidth caps having to pay for the download. Besides, the high-bandwidth users can keep themselves busy using the connection for something else while the update finishes. And even they might want to help reduce the load on the mirrors.
