Enjoyed your comment. I'm also not a GNOME developer, but have a keen interest in software and industrial interfaces (of all kinds). I use the GNOME regularly (Slackware [pre-10.2] and Ubuntu).
I admit I was impressed some years ago that that the GNOME folks even _produced_ a HIG for their project. It reminded me of something you'd see in Industry, which gave me the idea that there were some 'long view' developers involved with GNOME.
Indeed, I think GNOME's mission should be clarified and positioned better to avoid what I see as these "gray area arguments/bickerings" (neither party - GNOME or Novell - really understanding where the other party stood in regards to development - hence, chapped and bruised feelings du jour).
