At this time, we don't have plans on our roadmap to adjust privileges. Our moderators are aware that people will be receiving new privileges. If we, or our moderators, discover anything concerning from the data we're monitoring, we will evaluate our next steps.

As this comment says, the boundaries for privileges at the low end, e.g., for up voting, flagging, down voting, etc., are likely more important to consider possibly changing. Now, by asking just one or two questions with some positive up votes, it'll be that much easier to get those privileges than before. I suggest considering increasing some of these, ...

The request has some merit (so I've upvoted it), but in a sense it's already happening. Traffic on Meta Stack Exchange is three times the usual, and users are upvoting (and downvoting) much more often than they did: about ten times the usual according to this SEDE query: Most of those are upvotes, and those give a lot more reputation than downvotes cost ...

There is already a privilege at that step of the ladder, however I happened to consult the help page of a site where this privilege is hidden. The privilege is "reduce ads". By nature, it applies only to sites with advertising enabled.
