Capital gains tax.

Though that will rock for those that bought back when it was high and 
decided to cut their losses, tax deduction.

I'd complain that it kills the promotion of Bitcoin through small token 
trades (though people typically aren't going to put down that they have 
$5 in capital gains this year) -- but the deflationary nature of it and 
hoarding has done that already.
