It's difficult to feel sympathy for those who signed up to be guinea pigs, yes.
But there's something to be said for truth in advertising. I don't think the
people who signed up for the typography experiment assumed it would include
changes of this nature.
And there's something to be said for still treating guinea pigs reasonably.
This has every appearance of being a last-minute tack-on to the typography
experiment. As _you_ said, doing something like
<http://simplefocus.com/flowtype/> would be great
(<http://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/design/2014-January/001351.html>) and I
agree. But that's not what we got....
If you want to test layout changes, make a separate experiment. I've still yet
to hear a compelling reason not to do this. Yes, with your approach, you can
also gather data about how many people opt out of this experiment, but you're
completely needlessly shooting yourself in the foot, in my opinion.
Of course, this has turned into an "us v. them" scenario, yet again, so reason
will sit on the sidelines.
