Data is data, collected intentionally or not through an application or purpose. Doesn't matter who stores it for what purpose, its still stored and used for the good of the userbase to whatever purpose its used.
The example was used to illustrate how users come together and agree to disclose certain information to obtain benefits from sharing that information. Nothing you've said really negates my point.

But we have to remember that these are the restrictions WE.. being ontario/quebec play with. Other places have similar restrictions, but vary slightly.
I would be all for doing something like that. Other provinces have successfully done this. Ontario and Quebec remain exceptions I think in part because of the rather fragmented opinions on the issue - its a hot potato nobody wants to tackle. It should be tackled though.
