I think the gnome/KDE split introduced in F7 is pretty unfortunate as it
opens up the gnome/KDE discussion again, instead of supporting the integration
and bug-fixing part. Fedora needs to be an open platform where Open Source
projects get reviewed, tested, integrated and moved along.

What the different spins give is the flexibility that benefits end users while providing integration at the repo level because of the upcoming merge. It also gives developers the freedom to do that that make sense for only one desktop environment instead of being the base common denominator just to be somewhat neutral.

If you are a end user who wants just use a particular desktop environment then more focused spins is good. More importantly the tools are available in the repository which increasingly is making the process of creating a custom spin or derivative trivial. There is tremendous value in that.

Describing the spins are just a DE split is missing out the big picture. Folks are experimenting with a lot more than that. Look at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/LukeMacken/SecurityLiveCD.
