But you already said you won't use the library, so I don't see the need for WiFi.
To me, the killer application for the Kindle 3 is the New York Times Latest News Blog, at $1.99, which, in combination with the 3G feature you don't want, gives me the news where ever I bring my Kindle. Since you (like most people here) don't need this or similar features, why not just kept your device in wireless off/airplane mode all the time?
He mentioned above he would like to remotely connect to his computer. I'm sure there could me plenty of other usages other than downloading books.
