The board would likely never say that.  However there are a large number
of Fedora resources that are focused on new technology and advancements
in the user experience.  Most of this effort is focused on the Gnome
desktop.  This is due to the number of package maintainers in Fedora
that are also the upstream developers.
Perhaps more *DE upstream developers would be more willing to join and participate
if their *DE was competing on an equal ground against other *DE.

It's no rocket science to realize that the argument you gave is most likely the reason
for them staying away from the Fedoraproject.

They simply don't feel welcome @ the Fedoraproject.

Why is it so hard to abandon the "Default Desktop" concept and name it Fedora-Gnome.

Gnome has it's loyal fan base just like the other DE's have theirs.

Innovation is not going to stop for the Gnome project or Fedora in whole if happens to be renamed.

The users that already use Gnome will continue to do so.

Earth wont stop spinning..

What are everybody afraid of ?
