However, were it not for the freedom to make unpopular choices, including the choice to develop an alternative to an existing "good enough" solution, we wouldn't have Linux in the first place. Anyone who works on Linux is already exercising that freedom, which makes it hypocritical to talk about denying the same freedom to others.
Yes, it would be if anyone had said that, but you're arguing against a strawman. Anyone who wants to work on an alternative desktop environment is more than free to do so; no-one is denying them that right. However, it doesn't mean that everyone around them has to care about it, and/or pander to their needs, requests, and demands of other projects.
