iPhone: Very happy with no over the air music download

I am hearing lots of people asking if the iPhone has over-the-air music downloads. This doesn't interest me as I prefer sync-ing with my home PC, therefore downloading my music there first.

The reasons are:
1) I have a copy of music I purchase (given I might lose the phone)
2) I can add the music to the right playlists
3) Cost of home download versus cellular

What would be good would be able to 'flag' music/tv/movies to be downloaded at home when I am on the move.

Music downloads are gimmicky as they stand right now.

I commented on Verizon's V Cast download service one year ago:

Apparently I'm not the only one that agrees with you because V Cast's much promoted music download service has been restructered. Does it even still exist?
