I carefully answered every comment, and didn't make the decision lightly
either. I could see 2 people with concerns over it, one concerned with
OpenBSD, one with Ubuntu and Unity. Did I miss some opinions while
making this decision?

And even if I did not address all those concerns, am I contravening to
the rules that were set out a year ago?

GNOME's way seems to be to postpone the hard decisions 6-month down the
line. I've already had those same problems when I wanted to remove the
date and time helper in January, even though we discussed having systemd
as an external dependency in May the year before.
