I vote for wontfix. I can't make changes to api.piwik.org so the decision rests with Matthieu.

If "wontfix" it would be necessary to know if the url's get stored and what's happening with this data...

we use the url to count the number of piwik installs using each version and check that most users upgrade to the latest versions (for security reasons). We will never look at or publish the actual list (nobody has access to the DB except the sysadmin), we only use it for aggregated stats. This is also useful for us to know from which medium users find and install piwik (ie. sourceforge vs cpanel vs standard installs).

You are of course free to patch your piwik install to not send the url.
