Thanks for the detailed note Pierre! 

We seem to be on the same page — such stats are wonderfully misleading.

I’ve tried grouping HOT projects in the past based on the available metadata and have indeed encountered all the obstacles you mention. Part of my motivation to share this was also to gently nudge project creators to tag more consistently :) Such metadata can be very useful for large-scale evaluations and visualisations.

Although that image actually visualises individual edits, not just changesets.
