Err, I don't really recall anyone making a big fuss about that back then on planet battlefield or the other BF community sites. Where was this big petition or whatever? I recall most people liking Road to Rome and stuff like that, unfortunately the Wake demo servers were so popular that it was hard for them to get any traction.
Played 1942 and DC like a fiend but never even considered buying Road to Rome or Secret Weapons. My guess is that there were very few servers for those... Possibly constantly populated but still not enough players for hundreds of thriving servers. And I would assume the majority of mods would purposely not require the expansions.
