I think this is a bit of a distraction.  The Board is discussing what
Fedora the Project is.  Fedora the Distribution is very concretely
specified by what's on the get-fedora page.

Now, what Fedora the Project is does affect what Fedora the Distribution
 is but not in the same way as the concrete package set that gets run on
your computer.  The Board could say "Fedora is a project that aims at
making computers as easy to use as possible" and we'd still be having
this discussion about which packages on the default spin fulfill that
vision.
