No, this would not make everybody happy.  The websites team has given up
on making everybody happy a long time ago.  Just like with the old
download page at http://fedoraproject.org/get-fedora-all, new users
would be confused about exactly what they need to choose.  Just ask
anybody that has been helping out in #fedora before we changed the main
download page.

We choose one group to target more than the others, and that group is
new users that don't know what to choose.  We direct those new users at
the default and most common download instead of throwing choices at
them.  People that do know exactly what they want have one extra click
to go to http://fedoraproject.org/get-fedora-all where they have all of
the choices listed.  If other DEs were to be moved off of spins.fp.o in
the future, this is where they'd go as well.

Thanks,
Ricky
