The best results are achieved if everyone participates so I'd rather find
ways to make it painless for everybody first. But knowing how diverse the
opinions are, we will probably have to do something like this.
In that case, if someone opts-out, it might be interesting to have
heuristics to replace the missing data.

No idea, that's up for discussions.
The system would try to not send emails when someone is in VAC. But yes, “a
ping every X weeks and if Y pings are left unanswered then he enters the
MIA process” could be ok.
