What I think that they should do as another incentive for xbox live paying customers is to offer, say, 1000 or 2000 MS points every year so that there is something that you GET for your subscription.
But honestly, you are using their bandwidth while downloading, their servers for persistent online stats and messaging, and their matchmaking software (which, in my opinion is quite good, it's real easy to fire in and play, or play with friends without having to find a server and worry about team balancing). Is it worth $50? It's arguable. Do I enjoy paying for it? No, that's silly, no one enjoys paying for things. Should it all be free? I'd argue no, there is merit to paying a nominal fee, but I think there should be some sort of reward as well (like some free points per year).
