I don't think this idea is defined enough to ask for input from the
Fedora Board right now.

My personal opinion is that much of what people call fragmentation is
more a matter of differences in focus between communities.  And that
is not necessarily a bad thing.  Free and open source communities can
continue learning from each other without having to be exactly like
one another.  Freedom of choice is a strength, not a weakness.
