Ever asked designers of those high quality products if they would have loved data analytics on their products?

I bet they'd say they would have.

Would I love an extra thousand dollars per month on my account? Sure I would. Doesn't mean I'm going to cheat people to get it, even though I could.

But if there was an opportunity to do so, and it required some work, would you?

The data you are likely to get from this sort of spyware is typically less useful than even a few sessions watching real users actually using your product and actively collecting their voluntary feedback.
