People like you and keating likely are too RH-streamlined and too close
to RH to understand the importance of this consideration.

Anyone interested can look at the desktop focused features in the
feature list for every release and results should speak for themselves.
Those who shoulder the burden of the work decide the direction of the
project as always.
Yes. As part of upstream projects, not as part of Fedora.

What currently is happening: Certain people on RH's payrole, who happen to be upstream for some packages, are abusing Fedora as vehicle to prematurely push "upstream works", sometimes at "any price".

I am sure, if the same people weren't working for @RH and if these projects weren't in "RH's business interest", many of these developments would not make it into Fedora or at least not in the shape the Fedora community is facing them.

One example for this is Gnome ... The KDE Fedora folks pick up the crumbs falling of Nokia's/Trolltech's/Novell/SUSE's table and "clean them up" as part of their Fedora integration works.
