My impression was that it would benefit the people who installed
the repository, not just the sources.  If I'm mistaken, I'm sure
someone will correct me.  But that's why I perceive the propasal
as mostly affecting developers (in the sense of people who do any
code-tinkering, not just committers).

The 10% figures were hypotheticals to demonstrate which figure I
believed to be relevant.  They weren't meant to be accurate, aside
from both being smaller than unity.

IMHO, though, I generally find it reasonable that those who have
an opinion on a propsal should take it upon themselves to speak up,
rather than waiting to be polled.  But as you say, the proposal must
be set forth in an appropriate venue.
