If that's your decision, that's fine. I'd like to point out two things.
First, no matter what I use to crunch the stats--only counting full teams, only counting teams of four or more, or counting all teams--the tiering that I get is the same (with the exception of Hippowdon), as long as I normalize the stats. This invariance supports the validity of the various methods. I'd be willing to wager that if we were able to perform stats using R_D's method, we would get the exact same result (with the exception of maybe one or two pokemon).
Second, even if the plugin went into effect TODAY, you wouldn't get a full month's stats until NOVEMBER. At this point, UU is four-and-a-half months old. By November, it'll be six.
