It's definitely true that with Inkscape the scope is a bit narrower,
so coming up with a roadmap is a lot less intimidating a task than
it would be for the kernel.
However, we also have a lot of similar forces at work as the kernel
does. The contributors tend to work on a range of things, things
get worked out of order, stuff has to get postponed because no one
is interested in working on them, etc. Thus, I wouldn't say that
making the roadmap is an 'easy' task, but it can be done.
The key I've found is that the development team really has to have good
buy-in into it as a useful process, because much like documentation or
bug tracking or formal testing it needs to have at least a modest amount
of participation from the developers in order for it to function well.
