    Go through the archives of this list and read how many times people cite
Apt as the reason they use and stick with Debian.  The social contract gets
hardly the same number of mentions.  Why should the developers care?  One
presumes they have some interest in what the people whom are using their
distribution are interested in.  Otherwise they would be one very
self-involved and isolated bunch.
