Default Poll: Would you download a Wi-Fi only app?

Apple seems to have a data usage limit for apps they will approve. Anything that draws above 5MB of data within 5 minutes over cellular networks has been rejected in the past. It's making me consider making my upcoming video charades app Wi-Fi only since the sending and receiving of videos will easily blow past that limit. My original idea was to give each person up to 60 seconds to act their videos (in both low and medium resolutions), but hearing about this limit leaves with me the unappealing option of cutting the low resolution limit to 30 seconds and the medium resolution limit to 10 seconds.

So my question is, if you saw a fun looking app on the app store that was Wi-Fi only, would you download it, or automatically disqualify it from consideration?
