You completely miss the point. It's not about "obeying the dictates of
these groups" but to _contribute_ to "those groups".

Those who are interested in the common standards are free to join the
resp. mailing lists. You don't complain that khtml decision are made on
kfm-devel and not on kde-core-devel, do you? That kmail decisions are
made on kmail at kde.org? So where is the difference to freedesktop.org
mailing lists (or ietf or w3c or even red hat, if they host such a
standards-making project)? That they're not @kde.org? C'mon...

Everyone is free to subscibe to the resp mailing lists. If your
definition of openness is that you need to be CC'd on every decision,
then I fear KDE is not an open project in your sense, no.
