I have advocating for such features; if consumers raise their standards and are well-informed, they generally won't be disappointed with their purchase.
So you want everybody to pay for devices with expensive features they might not use adding unnecessary cost. What is the 4k source ? If its a disc there is no need to stream and if its over the internet then a consistent 15-20Mbps is required.
