Which one? There are 3 primary spins.

There is already no one main spin, there's the "Desktop" (GNOME) Live CD and
there's the installer DVD, both of which are "the main" to some people, and
there's the KDE Live CD.

Now I wouldn't object to only banning flags from the GNOME Live image
because that means we could ship them in KDE packages. ;-) But I'd disagree
in at least 2 ways with the rationale for that decision (censoring flags in
the first place and considering only GNOME a first-class citizen).
