Uh, no, both from the Newsforge article and the FAQ, the emphasis is
clearly on standardization and specifications as their work product, not

My statement was that it would be more productive to provide something
visable, usable, testable to users rather than discussions and
specifications (though those are important to arrive at the testable
product and to describe the end result post facto). That way regular
users can participate by making feature requests and bug reports.

Why would that not be relevant?

If you are only looking at it as infrastructure stuff (common brushes,
color information, etc), I can see your point. But common keybindings,
mentioned both in the article and the FAQ is common user interface in my
book, not infrastructure. And I think getting commonalities across UIs
is a very laudable goal. Whether they have it clearly in mind is not
100% clear, I will grant.
