No, exactly the opposite would happen. Because of different needs,
pushes and working speeds, the projects would start to fragment.

See http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel/673386/ 

Linux is different, because it has something that we don't want to have:
A benevolent dictator.

Our development model enforces peers and wants to avoid project lead
developers, so it seems that for us, a centralized development model is
actually better suited because it allows everyone participating to keep
up to date.
