True. But, if you can't find 3 people out of 900 (so 1 out of 300) who
see interest in a package, then that package is most probably very
rarely used.

Other thing: there might be a need for a new Priority (or re-arrange the
current ones). I mean, something like 'Priority: zero' or something like
that, so they won't even go to the official set of the CDs, etc.

Sure, but it might stop the growing of that list.
