Agreed – though it was mentioned in a few other places, it was never
meant to be a huge survey, and we're careful not to base too much of
the development on it. The point was to get some first feedback to
start working, and then gather more once we had something substantial
to show. Rather than gather a lot of information and then build
something, we hope to work with the community all the way through the
process, so to speak.

A clarification: the cross-wiki watchlist is not supposed to replace
the existing watchlist. We're building it so that users who like it
and are active on several wikis can use it instead, but only if they
choose to.
