Hey, you jummped in onto the wrong phrase ... the primary point is that
advisaries don't know ... whether thats because its secret or because your
market share is close to zero doesn't matter much imo.

Fact is that you announce something as a privacy feature that is only
effective (well ... lets assume that its effective at all, though I am
not sure about that) because of your zero marketshare .... I don't
know about you, but for me features that only depend on a small user
base are not *substantial* features ... and personally I don't like to
call something that will just disappear if your user-base increases a
*feature* at all.
