For me the above data can be classified as  "Number of bytes added" and the
sole purpose of it can be to have projections to increase storage if the
program is to expand, am sure wmf ops is otherwise too good at improving
infra and this would serve no purpose. I would call these as "fake numbers"
because a rollbacker's number would be huge negative number, but I would
assume everyone here agrees rollbacker does positive edits. There is no
point in having this numeric data since one cannot infer anything
irrespective of the number.
