Don't read too much into the retail sales things. As to the other stuff
well in a sense trying to create a single base that was Community Linux
and Enterprise Linux is a multiple personality kind of problem. So we 
now have two animals one personality each

Piece by piece yes. The split means people can now do things like put
Windowmaker back, or icewm, or add rox etc. 

Ironically this list is the wrong place to discuss a lot of the desktop
simplification, thats something the Gnome team themselves have decided to
do, along with building usability guidelines and human interface standards.
It has proved some interesting debates and a few fallbacks (such as the
emacs keys for gnome dialog editing option and sloppy focus support).
