I know a number of people have come down on both sides of the fence
for this one (and some firmly on top of the fence). I'll mention that
it has come in handy for me in the past. I put it into the category

I've been one that has added it to pkg-plist in the past.
One more thing that strikes me... the 13% rational doesn't seem like a
useful metric for deciding when something should be deemed
