I don't know what numbers you were seeing, but there should be quite a few a second coming in or the mouse wouldn't feel smooth (not to mention that first person shooters would be horrible).

I was seeing zero/second when the mouse isn't moving and about 20/second jiggling the mouse as fast as I could.  20/second is most definitely excessive over the network.

I'm with you 100%.  However, I do think we might want to make this one of those preferences that you can change by hand editing the file, but isn't exposed in the GUI.  So those of us trying to be cool can hand tweek it to our liking.

Agree completely.  Non-UI preference, documented in the help file.
