I do, because differences between TV's and monitors often make it difficult to tell just how good that image should be. I'm 37, so I should still have pretty good eyesight, but there are times when I stare at the TV wall in Best Buy for a long time before I decide which one I like. And if there are 20 TV's up there, all showing the same stream, they can all look different. Knowing the bitrate of different streams help ME differentiate and know what I should be expecting to see on a screen. I'm not saying it would help the average person or that an average person would even care (or know what a bitrate is).
