So MATE is to Gnome, what Trinity is to KDE. There really seems to be serious resistance against new developments in both major desktops, for people to bother making forks of such huge software systems.
Personally I feel "late-model" KDE3 is possibly the most usable Linux desktop system I have used, and curiously it is even relatively light-weight by today's standards. So Trinity, if it keeps going, might be interesting.
