It is one thing to question the wisdom of splitting a project, if one
perceives it that way, from going so far as to say that "all open source
code should be done at Apache and there are no reasonable scenarios in which
another open source community can or should attempt to co-operate with
Apache."  As I see it, you started from a specific example, provided an
extreme generalization, and questioned the extreme.  I would question that
extreme, too!  :-)

See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reductio_ad_absurdum

Personally, my view has been that if a community wants to come to the ASF,
to Eclipse, or to any other place, they should be able to do so, assuming
that the organization they wish to join is willing.  And I always encourage
collaboration, and convergence where appropriate.
