Many would, and I would. Cyanogenmod is actually trying to do that. However, in terms of what Google is doing, they made public statements and promises. They carried out those statements. So "delay" is NOT what happened. Delay would be them not delivering ICS.
Whether it's leadership is slightly different, but I point out they ARE doing more than most companies - we might want to be more involved, but at least they ARE dumping the code.
