easily assumed that at least 10% of ~$10M given by US citizens and

$1M/year is fair price for creating something which would please them.
Assuming that the "10%" figure is accurate, it has no bearing on the
feature's relative importance.
The same people/corporations might care more about numerous other
potential uses of the money (including different unimplemented
features), so your mathematical equation is invalid.
And I reject the premise that it's reasonable to base fund allocations
on popular opinion, with donors' views carrying extra (all?) weight.
Our mission is to disseminate information to the world, not to
"please" donors by catering to their preferences.
