No it isn't. It's very unlikely that all people are speaking at the same
time - at least they should to be able to communicate ;)
With silence detection you don't have more streams than with a central
server but I have a far more balanced load in the network.

And as we spoke off list: Voice conferencing would be very interesting
for companies too. And they can use multicasting in their network as
they control it themselves. Everything that is already integrated in the
existing transportation protocols (e.g. RTP).

(I know I promised you some usecases ... sorry that I still havn't
written them.)
