I was thinking it might be interesting to silently have them in place to
see what the uptake is, and then follow that with
explicitly calling them
out later to see what the impact might be.
The scientist in me finds this experiment interesting, but the product
manager in me would rather have our users informed and using the stuff we
make... and the product manager bit wins. ;-)
We'll roll it out with notices in the relevant bits of the store listing
and see what the uptake is.
