Because it might work better over your GSM data network which in itself 
has 1s delay.

And you're wrong, I communicate over skype all the time with 2+ second 
RTT. It's free, the 500ms RTT version costs quite a lot of money. Doing 
bidirectional talk over long RTT is a matter of practice.

I'd rather have 2s RTT for free than paying 1USD / minute.
