Ok, I admit, That was a huge assumption on my behalf.

4 million downloads of WordPress in 2007, and theres a lot more installs  
of WordPress around the web i'm sure
I personally, without numbers, Doubt a majority of those users use a  
desktop application, Allmost everyone *I* know are avoiding using desktop  
applications if there's a Web-based equivilent, I'd guess that we both  
come from different demographics,

Theres allways going to be a % using offline clients, And theres going to  
be an increased % using Web-based non-WP blogging interfaces, but AFAIK,  
the API's are not currently the primary access method of most of the users.
