Seems like "GNOME OS" is managing to get any discussion off-track, I 
shouldn't have used it there :p

My point is mostly "GNOME consider they should focus on their product on 
not downstream issues". I've heard speakers at GUADEC saying that GNOME 
shouldn't do compromises or efforts for distributors but that things 
should be the other way around ... distributors should make efforts for 
GNOME since their role is to distribute what upstream is doing.

It's a fair statement but also a reality that shows, GNOME is less 
wanting to make efforts to accommodate distributors that it used to be 
(see how they manage transitions or hard/optional depends compared to 
how those were dealt with in the GNOME2 times)
