(d) It is a niche activity.

A very important niche activity, and one that Fedora is doing the
right thing by pursuing. But still a niche activity. Ubuntu has
pursued this incredibly actively for a couple years now, and still has
basically no more than a handful of active projects doing it.
Definitely keep working on it, and keep improving the tools where you
get good feedback, but don't sweat the uptake quite yet.
