And I'm only a dumb Marketing Guy and not a programming expert, so we should 
make a good team.  :)

However, this sort of research goes on all the time, questions are asked by 
Google of their data mining, by research companies and the like and Marketing 
People pay much money to these companies for the results.

And in fact we know a lot of the answers already.  What you suggest above is 
in fact valid in certain market segments, but it doesn't work for all.  But 
then that's we do, define a market and find out what criteria are valid for 
that market and package to suit.
