Because they are focusing their efforts in the wrong place.  They
should be helping KDE, not GNOME!  GNOME is a dying if not dead
desktop.  It can barely hold its own as a default install on Fedora!
The sooner RH employees abandon GNOME the better prepared they will be
for the ultimate transition they will have to eventually make.

Acceptable to me?  I don't own stock in Intel or Dell.  I own shares
of RHT.  If Redhat is wasting resources on GNOME, I care about it!

Yes, it would appear they get to force their misguided choice of
desktop onto the ignorant masses, and even still it can barely hold
its own as the default.  RH is going to have to abandon GNOME
eventually, and the sooner they do so the better.
