FamilySearch puts an end to pointless indexing projects?

At www.familysearchindexing.org/home.jsf there is an announcement that "the FamilySearch indexing system will be down for maintenance on October 28 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (MDT, GMT-6). Please do not try to download or submit batches during this downtime."

The announcement continues "Many new and updated features will be introduced during this downtime, click here to see a list and descriptions of each of them."

One of these is about points which "provide a way for you to measure your personal indexing contribution to FamilySearch. In the future, points may even provide you with access to searchable record collections that are otherwise restricted by the record custodians."
