Why do you think the two sets of goals have to be one and the same ?

The Fedora Workstation effort (not a great name, by the way), is brand
new, and its goals have only just been drafted. How could the goals that
GNOME has followed in the past 3 years be perfectly align with it ? And
why should they, for that matter ? This is not a GNOME project, it is
about saving Fedora.
