One need that users have is for good and prompt security updates.  Being
in the loop on preannouncement discussions helps the security team to
provide these updates.  Not being in the loop would result in a similar
amount of information being avaliable to users (we wouldn't know about
security issues like this so wouldn't be able to tell users) and reduced
quality for the security updates.
