If you have been reading Reddit /bitcoin you will know that a lot of big banks are closing any business that are related to Bitcoin, including exchanges.

Some of the blacklist banks: HSBC, Captial One and a lot more.

Eventually all the Napster-style bitcoin business models will fail and be replaced by P2P Bittorrent-like replacements.

Yea good point.  Decentralization needs to be a prime concept in new projects.  A lot of people here want to put their head in the sand when working on projects, ignoring legal or regulatory analysis which lets them ignore the decentrality requirement, but a lot of this work will be done in vain as the state apparatus crushes their effort.

It's got to be done in the right order.

Everybody wants to start a business now, but currently if you want to build a decentralized business you have to build it from scratch since there are no tools to help you.

On the other hand what if someone started building, not a business, but a turnkey open source software platform for creating and operating arbitrary decentralized business? That would help things along, wouldn't it?
