Because those of us who are engaged on the project thought that it's the 
best thing to do, and want them to do this.  But the volunteer community 
are still autonomous today.

If you want someone to join your party, then the best way is to use 
rational arguments and gentle persuasion.  Giving bald ultimatums to 
communities with other options usually achieves the direct opposite effect.

So it doesn't seem a rational approach to me -- unless, of course, your 
primary object is really to shut down the service, and then it is rational.
