True, but but few of us are actually targeted by national security agents.

While that's true, I think we are well aware that the vulnerabilities installed by national security agents are the targets of malicious non-state associated actors, including those who are fundamental privacy advocates. Consider when the big equation group story came out. At that time most of the vulnerabilities being released were still actual live 0 day exploits. I think it came to public eye partly because of "Da Flame" being identified during the Iranian centrifuge attacks documented in 2012.
