Well, I reckon if (in some dark and twisted reality) Microsoft came out
and released a Gnome Office it should be in the summary (and Gnotices)
as this is what it's about.

I like that you have asked for our opinion.  I think we need to be
careful with the "S/He who does it decides".  It's a nice idea, and
should be encouraged in individual projects, but when it comes to a
Policy type decision then it's a bit different.  

It looks like most people feel that the balance the two of you have
achieved is good.  That must feel good too I guess :o)
