My take on this is to not worry too much about general vs niche at this stage. If you have a use case that has relevance for you as a stakeholder, then add it! While too much niche-ism obviously will not be good in the end, the idea is that the IG use case acceptance process (e.g. taking the status from NEW to ACCEPTED or REJECTED) as well as the forthcoming prioritization exercise, would catch and filter out or at least demote entries that are found to matter to too few. 

As you know Rob, it is advisable generally to be as specific as one can about the actor(s) from the onset, to help us later on. E.g. using PUBLISHER-SCHOLARLY, or something like that, for the case you mention.

In scope.
