I agree with you that AbiWord is a GNOME app and should be considered
as such. I expect it will be in the GNOME 1.4 extra apps release
(although the final say is up to Ian and Jamin), along with gnumeric
and dia.

Corporate affiliation is not the determinant of what is and is not a
GNOME app, and neither is it necessary to use every possible GNOME

You are right that the slight is unfair. Miguel was stating his
personal opinion, not any kind of official GNOME position.
