Whatever happened with "over-represented subjects"

About a month ago, Jason posted the following:

"Hi All - we've been listening to your feedback and are trying to make Pixoto a more fun and interesting place for photographers and image buyers alike. One issue that we're trying to address is that some subjects are over represented on Pixoto. While these photos may be great in their own right - it can become tiring to see so many versions of essentially the same thing. We are planning on banning some over-represented subject based on member feedback."

The crux of this comment is this: "While these photos may be great in their own right - it can become tiring to see so many versions of essentially the same thing."

The importance of this comment is this: any one tog's portfolio filled with "versions of essentially the same thing" (subject) does little to boost stock sales, and from the perspective of buyers viewing multitudes of similar images, it does little to promote the reputation of this site for having a wide range of superior stock images from which buyers may choose.

Here is one of many portfolios with "essentially the same thing" (subject). Of this tog's top 16 photos, 13 are of the same subject and the remaining three are also of the same, though different, subject (frog posed on frog):

I am in no way putting down this tog in his ability to pose the croc with the mantis, but come on, dude...enough is enough!

So, cutting to the chase, the question for Jason: When you say, "We are planning on banning some over-represented subject based on member feedback," is there any time frame for this plan, and if so, when?
