A proportional bias is not an oxymoron. It matches a proportion of the
playlist to the given bias condition. You'll note that in the dynamic
playlist UI there are 3 types of biases: proportional, fuzzy, and
custom. So i don't really know what you're on about.

(i agree that in the next revision of dynamic playlists what you say
is valid. however that's not how things work now. it is simply a type
of bias (the other being fuzzy and 'custom' [which is in turn,
echonest, etc])
