I don't follow you here. I use demand-dialling (via request-route) and
find it very convenient. Why should the end-user have to run a ppp
front-end program every time she wants to check out a web page?

How does demand-dialling preclude this? In any case, incoming ppp is a
completely seperate issue (who besides isp's needs it?)

Dial-up ppp, once configured, should no more need a "user interface" than
does a LAN.
