You do realize that YouTube has one critical flaw...
IT IS POPULAR.

Which means that everyone posts their videos there. Now... think LONG TERM.

How many petabytes of storage does GOOGLE have to devote to YouTube?
As hours long videos are posted, reposted, new videos made in UHD resolution... the growth isn't linear it's EXPONENTIAL.

Which would be challenging if it were in a world of infinite free resources... but resources aren't free. More electric power is needed, more server racks of terabyte hard drives or solid state drives. More real estate.
All to store videos and other amusement noises. And it is growing every instant.
EXPONENTIALLY.

How long before the videos are downgraded to low-res just because it isn't popular? To save space or reclaim new video upload space. Or just auto-deleted after a certain number of days? To make room.
How long before "We are sorry, YouTube is FULL" we cannot accept any new video uploads", error messages pop up?

And unbridled free expression is even less profitable.
Look at the biggest reason videos get flagged: DMCA. As in shit people can get sued over.
As in shit that will bring the wrath of Disney, Fox Studios, and half a dozen different legal teams down on the sorry son of a bitch who runs a website that doesn't keep it in check.
Heroes is about ending the false flags. Right now youtube depends on an automatic system that scans videos for audio and video they have received notice about. Heroes is about removing the error that causes innocent videos to get flagged.

Doubtful. While there's lost ad revenue, it won't be enough to scare Google into changing anything.
And ultimately, it just means changing the system a bit. Like removing mass-flag tools. Simple enough.
Ultimately, who is this for? The users? They watch videos and post comments. They aren't being censored.
It's about the uploaders. And why do they care? Money. Sure, anyone who got a video flagged will go up in arms about the morality of the situation, but they only care about their lost revenue. Are you going to convince them to move over to freetube? How much ad revenue is a site that doesn't want to censor people going to make? Once you consider how few ad hosts will want to affiliate themselves with such a site, and the immense amount of legal fees they'll be spending after millions of users upload stolen content because censorship of any kind is bad...

So the current system is flawed because it makes mistakes, better put people in charge who may intentionally abuse the system. Sound logic. There's no way people with an agenda could possibly abuse this.

Some of the uploaders would definitely be affected. People like Totalbiscuit bring in millions of views each video, and if they left or were banned they would notice the drop in traffic. End of the day it simply shows that censorship isn't profitable.

It takes too much effort for too little reward. The results will be temporary at best. And the end game is way too lofty.
It's a terrible plan; whether you think so or not.

Too much effort from people who will spend hours of work over a relatively minor thing? This would cost thousands of dollars in lost ad revenue and man power to bring it back online, not to mention bandwidth. It shows, in no uncertain terms, that the system is trash from the ground up, and that trying to maintain it will cost them money.

iPhone 7 sales suffered because iPhone announced ahead of time that online sales were more likely to get phones sooner. People learned from last time. They still sold out at every location so I'd like to know where those empty stores allegedly were.
Facebook never lost any significant amount of traffic despite these changes in online activity you're reporting.
And people aren't going to stop going to youtube over this. If anyone felt enough outrage to jump ship because of "heroes" they wouldn't need 4chan to come and fuck everything up for a few hours to make them do so.

I can't seem to find any pictures of it, but there were a bunch of empty or nearly empty Apple stores during the launch.
The changes in habits regarding Facebook were about what people put online in the first place.
End of the day, it's a decent plan to make Youtube seriously reconsider the whole program if they end up going through with it, whether you think so or not.
