You've overlooked my point that the sites offering uncompressed files for download were /specialist/ stores (ie different from the average online music shop).

I wouldn't expect the average user to download WAV files, but then I wouldn't expect the average user to be DJing in front of 2000 people on a 40k sound system either ;-)

Granted they maybe ignorant, but then at least with uncompressed files you know /exactly/ what you are getting and you know it's 100% compatable with all of your set up (for example, most sequencers don't support FLAC)
