You mean user's involvement. You don't want users to be invited to
participate in Debian. Debian isn't elitist and it shouldn't care that
the tool being deployed is money rather than time.

Your argument invites exclusion and you've not made a good case for why
out-of-band unknown-to-everyone transactions are better. Only that it is
technically possible to do so *kind of*. And that existing Debian
members have said they find in-band transactions distasteful.

Although we don't even invite users to participate with their time. So
we're not even good at advertising Debian to Debian users anyway, even
if it would be interesting and good for them to do so.
