Seems to me any UNI holder that is active in governance should self delegate, as you could have ‘faithless electors’. Whats the advantage to giving your votes to someone else unless you have large amounts of trust and/or arent going to participate in voting, esp in the early stages of governance? Personally I had no idea I had to even self delegate to have my votes count, I thought they would be self delgated automatically.
At at any rate, to be truly decentralized, we need our votes to count. Spread the word for all UNI holders to self delegate.
