This is an interesting position, are we supposed to subordinate technical
decisions to marketing now?
Also are you even sure we get better marketing by not allowing liquidshell to
be a KDE thing?
I can very well see headlines like "Plasma developers force other KDE

contributing to other parts of our software range.
