Enforce?  Would the OS deactivate itself if you didn't run popcon?  :)

We're running somewhere in the neighborhood of 500 Debian stable servers.
I'm afraid running popcon on them is a non-starter so far due to concerns
about information exposure.  When this was previously discussed on
debian-devel, it became clear that we're far from the only ones in that
