That's why Oak's article begins, "What a shame it comes only now..."
His post sounded pretty level-headed to me. If you read it as bashing, I suggest you compare it to some of the trolls.

I mean, extensions are a nice mechanism for gnome enthusiasts to experiment different kind of UI features, but gnome developers shouldn't expect others to install random code from some www-site they have no experience with.
Without such code being useful/important enough to have been packaged in the distro repositories i.e. tested to work with gnome version one is using & not break it, signed etc, why normal user would even consider installing it?

I expect (in the probabilistic sense) others to install random code from some website they have no experience with, even if I don't expect (in the Nelsonian sense) them to.
