concurrent users

I have been following an interesting discussion thread regarding the
management of concurrent users.  As I recall in this discussion, a member
of our list requested feedback whether it was reasonable that a content
provider require a library to monitor the number of concurrent users.  
Apart from the more traditional mechanisms of managing the number of users
see http://www.library.yale.edu/~llicense/mongen.shtml , where it states
that it is reasonable that a content provider require the library to limit
access to unauthorized material, I would be interested to hear the views
of members of this list serv whether other management models would better
suit the site license environment between content providers and libraries.
After all the idea of concurrent or simultaneous users is a fiction in the
internet environment and not an efficient method of determining a license
price point.
