Silverlight coming tthe 360, ads too

Well it looks like the Microsoft Flash competitor, Silverlight, is coming to the Xbox 360. You know what else is coming along for the ride? Ads. Yeah, more ads to fill up the dashboard for us to see. I deal with some of the ads using Microsft's Media Center and watching some of the Internet TV items. While I don't find it that annoying, I don't want to have to watch them if I am paying for my Xbox Live service. Now if you offer a free ad supported Gold membership route then I'm game. I don't want to see ads though if I am paying $50 a year. Do you think that if we get ads on the 360 we should pay for the Gold membership as well?
