Browsers *do* consume arbitrary quantities of downstream bandwidth, and
sometimes upstream bandwidth too. Opera even built BitTorrent into their
browser. Most "browsers don't do X" norms have already fallen by the
wayside. "Browsers don't act as relays" will too.

Given browsers are general-purpose application platforms, it makes more
sense to ban specific Web sites than browsers if you're worried about
excessive bandwidth usage.
