I blame people who market 'for call to actions', I think a more focused push to banner ads that promote 'awareness marketing' without immediate call to actions makes more sense for banner ads.
It doesn't make sense for people to 'abandon' what they are doing on a website in order to go off onto another action most times this is why i think PPC doesn't make sense.
Even though you may receive less initially I think it makes far more sense to implement a CPI or CPM standard then the onus is on the advertiser to create the 'lure' to pull away your website visitors through creative ads and efficient call to actions.
