Ringtone Purchases vs Legal Music Downloads

The basic difference between the two approach is that of Federation. Interesting thing to look at with regards to how future federations would work. An important issue that it brings out is that I would really want to understand how that mobile charging works (in terms of privacy and transaction). Does this system makes the identity provider i.e. your cell phone the single point that can use and sell your buying habits to the highest bidder (or all the bidders).
