Find details about how to participate by going to this link.

Clustered nr is the standard NCBI nr database clustered with each sequence within 90% identity and 90% length to other members of the cluster. Your BLAST search runs against a single representative sequence for each cluster. The representative is used as a title for the cluster and can be used to fetch all the other members.Clustered nr is smaller and more compact for searching. Results for a clustered nr search have more taxonomic depth than standard nr results. Clustered nr uses the MMseqs2 software

This is a nice service and should be very useful. Still, I don't think enabling only blastp for this option will make the most difference. It would cut down even more significantly on psi-blast searching because of multiple passes.
