That is not true. The shared vision for 2.x was a time based release cycle,
GNOME as a product, and deep changes in our vision for FOSS usability. We
have now reached the point where that vision has changed from a goal into an
assumption, its pros and cons are embedded in our culture, and it is no
longer a driving force. You're suggesting we adopt a zero-vision strategy of
throwing shit at a wall and seeing what sticks [1]. This will not work.

    for which that strategy has not proven successful. *cough*
