Not at all; I just think that it's not clear that they are a net win

Tom is correct here. They are not a net win for the average user. We tend to forget that although we collectively have a lot of enterprise installs where this does matter, we collectively do not equal near the level of average user installs.

From an advocacy perspective, the average user install is the one that we tend most because that tending (in theory) will grow something that is more fruitful e.g; the enterprise install over time because we constantly and consistently provided a reasonable and expected experience to the average user.
