Freedom should be obstructed or discourged at one level or another
nonetheless. When forking becomes excessive (because each developer wants to
leave his/her mark), it becomes damaging to the whole -- GNU/Linux. There
should be some guidelines that avoid confusion and lack of uniformity.
Communication is all it takes. GNOME/KDE and others have been doing that
recently, as well.

Just my opinion...
