This is the way Apache projects operate.  It requires that folks listen 
to criticism and potentially accept compromises if they wish to make 
progress.  If folks cannot reach consensus in an area then that area 
will not make progress.

I am interested in having this project primarily deliver a reliable, 
efficient MapReduce kernel implementation.  That's the core 
functionality that folks seek to not recreate.  The project should focus 
on a minimal, low-level MapReduce API for this kernel and permit other 
projects to build higher-level abstractions.
