I don't follow. They're in the business of serving static content, right?

They are willing to serve as your CDN if you don't make them front too much image or audio traffic and you don't make them front any video. Their free tier is for non-media-focused sites only.

Why don't they just limit it by bandwidth/hits? Is there anything special about media content that it should be considered differently?

Video might mean adaptive bitrate I suppose.
