To be very clear, we (Google/Android) are not opposed to some level of compromise, incremental shifts, and migration of APIs. We just find the "no you should throw it all away and rewrite your userspace to be different" approach to be something we're not interested in doing.
I suspect there's a middle ground somewhere between "put all of the Android changes in the kernel unmodified right now" and "delete them forever because they suck". Here's hoping we find it.
