Considering the fact that it would allow us (the Pg Community) to give a
  nice survey (i dont know of any yet.. besides the pgsql-cert one...)
along with the rest of it (analisys, graphs, and so on... )... and under
an OSS liscence... makes it even anazingly cool...

I would suggest "Would you consider using a commercial standar/advanced
server (based on PostgreSQL)... i guess it would be usefull for both...
EnterpriseDB and the community...
