FWIW, I read that article as saying, "Let's work together on resolving
this problem I just described."  There is a statement about making a
commitment to take what they give us *if we require them to do all the
work of making the art*.  I presume, if we choose to work _with_ them
including adding some efforts from our Fedora designers, then we don't
have to commit to taking the result of the work.

Personally, I found the argument interesting and compelling, at least
enough to say we could open a dialog with the KDE upstream designers
on this.  Maybe it turns out what they want will not work with
Fedora.  But maybe it does, and we can meet half-way or so, and get a
bit more of what we all want.
