I think it would be helpful to users if they get a notification if they are using a closed plugin/theme from the repo's.

I'm thinking this might help website admins avoid hacks and such because they are using a plugin/theme with a vulnerability.
Since, currently it's quite a manual check.

At the other hand, it has the possibility to create some fear culture. Especially if a plugin is e.g. shutdown because a trademark issue and sometimes those can be resolved "easy and fast" (changing the logo/name or a trademarked name in a string...)

So, what do you all think?
