Yea, and unfortunately it seems that I failed say what I wanted to. 
Everyone is talking about this being part of the update information 
system, which it isn't. It only for statistics. And nobody seems to get 
the difference between transmitting URL and plugin data separately to 
transmitting them together.
Seems like having a gray position isn't very popular. Or maybe it's just 
too complicated that to things are not that dangerous by them selves as 
they are linked to each other. :-/

Cheers Morty
