in which I wait for Fedex

I am at home today – waiting for a FedEx Ground delivery.  Using my past experiences with FedEx Ground as a barometer, it is unlikely the package will be delivered before 5:00 PM tonight.  I think there is an untapped market that UPS and FedEx could explore.  The amount of time a package is in transit is rarely important to me, but the delivery window is something I always care about.  They could offer a hybrid service that offers ground shipping with a priority delivery window (for an additional fee).  What if I could schedule the delivery for a particular day and time?  They could offer premium rates for popular delivery times (nights and weekends) and discount rates for less popular delivery times.  Anybody ever heard of anything like this?
