Everyone loses while it's closed. Some customers are lost foever, some complain that it didn't need to change and others can't wait till it reopens.
There's not much anyone can do but when it reopens the service will be much faster and hopefully bring in more customers.
Lets hope that the remodel prevents anyone from standing in the doorways slowing people from getting in and out. In other words preventing spamming efforts that falsely slow down transactions, drive up fees and create a phony urgency to scale recklessly.

Before anyone rants about not keeping coins on exchanges during this time, I do understand that's the safest, and clearest answer to all of this. However, that doesn't give Coinbase, or any exchange, an excuse for not giving a very clear answer to this after plenty of time to evaluate this particular split.
Coinbase in particular offers a vault service with the purpose of holding Bitcoin longterm, so for those specific customers, it's not really sufficient to say to just remove your Bitcoin ahead of the potential split. Is that going to be the stance for every potential split? What would the purpose of the vault service be then?
Coinbase seems to have last posted about hard forks in general at this link. They recommend withdrawing from their platform, however the way it's worded is that it's only necessary if you are wanting to access your Bitcoin during the uncertainty period. https://blog.coinbase.com/update-for-customers-with-bitcoin-stored-on-coinbase-904dea08ac5f
I end with a question to the community here: The Coinbase multi sig vault says you retain your private keys. Are those keys able to be imported into both potential chains like hard wallets or paper wallets? If so, then Coinbase should mention that as a solution for their customers. Or they should clarify that they are not actually private keys. https://www.coinbase.com/multisig?locale=en-US
