No, but the people behind the spin / SIG should agree with each other on
these things.

If there was a motivated team of people, sure, they could create a Gnome
spin.  They'd have to go through the spin SIG and get all the approval
levels.  Depending on how much difference there would be between the
gnome spin and the desktop spin, we may choose to not produce/distribute
their spin as part of a Fedora release though.

We only have one default, one Fedora Desktop spin.  We aren't going to
have multiple.

I don't think we can have that scenario.  The Desktop sig creates the
Desktop spin, and its that spin that the Fedora project puts forward as
it's default spin.
