Open your eyes then. A transparent proxy is a general purpose tool many
entities use, it may come in an appliance, have been installed by a
third-party years ago, depend on a different department, etc 

Just because one or several users have the access needed to deploy
Fedora on a few computers does not mean they can touch the associated

It only fills a niche for entities which have already decided to invest
heavily in Fedora (and it does not change with entity size, since a huge
corp will have to pass all sorts of internal procedures & budget reviews
to deploy it, and a single home user will have to devote comparatively a
lot of time to find and set it up). Ergo in terms of market penetration
help it's useless.
