Time to stop selling the "always on" connections, then, I guess, because it is "always on" - not P2P - which is the fat man never leaving. P2P is merely the fat man eating a lot while he's there.
As long as we're keeping up this metaphor, P2P is the fat man who says he's gonna get a job real soon but dude life is just SO HARD and crashes on your couch for three weeks until eventually you threaten to get the cops involved because he won't leave. Then you have to clean up thirty-seven half-eaten bags of Cheetos.
Every network has limitations, and I don't think I've ever seen a network that makes every single end-user happy with everything all the time. You could pipe 100Mbps full-duplex to everyone's door, and someone would still complain because they don't have gigabit access to lemonparty.
Whether those are limitations of the technology you chose, limitations in your budget, policy restrictions, whatever.
As long as you fairly disclose to your end-users what limitations and restrictions exist on your network, I don't see the problem.
