There is a chicken/egg problem here. Karma isn't required, ergo it
doesn't happen. If karma is required, we might see an increase in karma
registered, as well as an uptick in tools development to help provide
karma (we're already seeing this in F13, one could conclude that part of
that is because karma is required for critpath packages).
