If enough of data to be representative of the majority of our community is submitted to Mozilla, and that data is made publicly available as aggregates, then end-users could also ask questions such as whether the set of add-ons they have installed cause problems for many others or be able to see how much better in terms of stability or performance the next version of Firefox is likely going to be for themselves. Even if no data is sent to Mozilla, I really hope that the local data is still collected and made available through about:metrics because it could really help users understand and fix problems.
