It's more than reasonable. The cost of premium has always been pretty cheap on this site and even with the increase will remain so. If we want to see CC get more features and, dare I say it, go mobile, the only way to do that is with more money. On this note I'd encourage bW to pursue advertising more heavily if he isn't already. I know that CC is a part time thing for him and he spends the majority of his time doing back-end work since he is the only coder that works on CC anymore.
As for him not posting, I explained why he likely didn't before. I imagine he also wasn't sure how we would react and preferred Dukasaur to announce it himself given his good reputation with the community. Or perhaps Dukasaur offered, since he's that kind of guy. It's all speculation, but I do feel it wouldn't have been much effort on bW's part to make the post.
