In addition to what you say, even as a Gnome fan I could see that Bruce tilted the "debate" from the very start to produce a Gnome selection. I think you are correct, if only one was to be chosen it would have been healthier had the choosing been overtly done very the very start. Then it would have attracted and detracted from the start instead of alienating much of the interested parties.
