Yes, very true. GNOME wants to dictate some policies. Fair play,
because we own the code. But that dictate may kill gnome publicly - if
distros would not want to be dictated.
Back into the history, X11 provided "mechanism, not policy". GNOME
enforces policies. Fine, but let's not go too far with this dictate.

And anyway, even if we dictate policies - at least we should have
courtesy to put them in words, I guess.

Seem so.

Very good question, actually.
