Proposed Incoming takes away from users (Social Contract violation?)

I read in the past DWN:
  "The main advantage of this change is that only the packages will be
   publically visible through [3]incoming.debian.org, are those to be
   installed by the next archive run."

Advantage?  I think not.

How is giving the users *less* access to not-yet-installed packages, etc,
consistent with point 4 of the Social Contract?

Taking away from the users isn't an "advantage."
