That is because stills generate an illusion that time stood still, allowing the photographer to shoot what he did at his leisure...
I don't know how serious you were, but I certainly appreciate bandwidth and could show you an example or two of images I shot where I thought to myself... "not bad bandwidth" .
I also appreciate the fact that a 24 mpx 8 fps camera would be ripping bits off the sensor at 2.7 ghz and that includes the A/D conversion, not just a simple data pipe. The actual rate would be higher since the rip can't be continuous. It needs to start and stop between exposures and some of the mirror flips. And the circuit probably sits on a flex board, not even a proper PC board (never tore down one of my cameras so not sure, but a lot of the circuitry is on flex board). I find it all quite amazing, myself.
