It doesn't follow that an idea is bad because there is no demand for it. Often it has to be made available before people realise they want it. For example the founder of IBM, Thomas J. Watson, famously said “I think there is a world market for about five computers.” How wrong was he?
Obviously canvas opinion but I think this idea should be judged on its merits. Not on the result of a questionnaire. That's the path of Focus Groups, Straw Polls and lowest common denominator politics so favoured by our press and politicians.
BTW I rather like this other quote by TJ Watson as well:
“Follow the path of the unsafe, independent thinker. Expose your ideas to the danger of controversy. Speak your mind and fear less the label of 'crackpot' than the stigma of conformity.”
Not that I think the proposal is particularly radical
