*nod*  It's possible that the existence of the variable and the NEWS entry 
might make people more likely to consider the question in the first place, and 
thus more likely to express a preference that they otherwise wouldn't have had

That's fine; I don't think it needs to be changed immediately after cutting the 
release.  As long as we have a path for accumulating information about what the
