"Family Tiering" is relatively easy to accomplish with today's cable plants. 
Put all the family programming on the analog tier, and move everything else 
to a digital or scrambled analog tier that requires an addressable box.

True a la carte requires addressable receivers, either analog or digital.  I 
don't know of any MSO that relies 100% on STBs for every subscriber, so the 
only industry that is in a position to offer true a la carte is the DBS 

Good luck in getting Dish or DirecTV in offering true a la carte.
