I think the choice of subscription level depends as much on what you name it as how much it costs. I signed up for the "professional hacker" level because that's what I am. If you had a $5 level called "average hacker", and called the 10$ level "professional hacker". (With "project leader" somewhere above that) I would have signed up for $10/mn instead.
Don't get me wrong, I'm all for cutting a break for students or those of us who are employmentally challenged. But if you have a job as a developer, $10/mn isn't a lot of money. I spend more on coffee every day then I do on my monthly subscription.
It's kinda like going to a museum and putting $5 in the box because that's the "suggested donation". If the "suggested donation" were $10 it wouldn't change how often I went. I'd just pay the $10 and not worry about it.
