The issue is bigger than just GNOME. Think of e.g. UPower. There is
various other software which is affected by this. Requiring people to do
your bidding is against the Debian social contract. While this is pretty
much what the GR is about. Seems unrealistic, plus seems you're voting
on something without knowing any specific ("just GNOME"). If you expect
upstream/Debian packager teams to take people who cannot bother to
inform themselves on their topic serious, then geez... good luck but
you're heading towards a wall.
