Since when is advertising NOT a sign of
an obvious economic incentive?

Stats by themselves can be boring. But making data
available regularly and publicly will inevitably
lead to some people doing analyses of this data and
presenting those analyses to NANOG meetings. This will
lead to wider understanding of what is going on and
will provide raw material for getting management support
for actions to solve the problem.
