Not that I like MySQL much. But it would just lead more people to Oracle express edition, SQL Server or some other monstrosity without even source code.
Now, killing Oracle's product might be a good idea if a better fork were to prevail... but that is also unlikely given the brand recognition MySQL has. I wonder how a package under the GPL can have such a high degree of fragmentation, I don't recall other prominent examples.
