While I disagree with the conclusion you made, I do agree that nobody has a
clear definition of what Fedora as an _OS_ is.  What the Board is addressing
is slightly different, as it is tackling what Fedora is from a project view.

FESCo should be taking that overall direction from the Board and making sure
the technical composition of the default Fedora distro release puts forth the
best approximation of those higher level goals.

That is not to say that other spins are of lesser value.  But you make a good
point in that the current spins situation is a bit confusing for end-users.
