Its hypothetical 

The fact that its optional means its also irrelevant in any case

IMO microsoft technology (outside the realms of genuine interoperability
like wine or samba) is  pretty much irrelevant to the wider GNOME
community too. Any attempt to add MS stuff in the future is likely to be
optional. If it ever becomes mandatory, Gnome would probably fork and
its as simple as that. The official GNOME approved desktop and platform
is really the lowest common denominator for all its members - at least
that is how I understand how they approve stuff for it.

BoycottNovell are really "trolls r us" and are anti-gnome as much as
they are anti-novell
