It does, and some of the use cases for it are quite compelling.  However,
there is often deep mistrust associated with it: years of propaganda from
the copyright lobby have fostered the impression that it is inherently
malicious.  That can be very difficult to overcome: it's in the
same class of mythos as "all ICMP traffic is bad", and well, lots of
us have spent lots of time over lots of years trying to get past that one.
Getting P2P accepted looks like a much bigger hill to climb.
