What "people" though?  If we're concerned about new users finding Fedora
and thinking they would like to use our distro, pointing them to
our /project/ mission statement is entirely wrong.  Pointing them to
the /product/ page for a Desktop spin, or KDE spin, or Education spin is
entirely right.

If we're talking about contributors, then the product page isn't quite
for them.  The project page is more about why we are doing these things,
why we are producing the various products and what purpose the entire
thing serves.

Simply put, the Project page should not be the landing page for users.
