Anyone besides Simon Poole still against?

@simonpoole I honestly do not understand all this "holding back culture" that seems to surround the government of openstreetmap.org both when it comes to integrate useful mapper-tools and as in this issue useful geocoders. 
The arguments from you in this issue seem to stem from fear. Is this correct? Can you help me understand this?

I have yet to hear any reports of openstreetmap.org affecting anyone negatively. Actually the lack of integration with the rest of the OSM-tooling ecosystem is as I see it the biggest hurdle to succesful evolution of OSM and the main website. This seems to lead to fragmentation, duplication of effort, confusion for newcomers, lack of good Quality Assurance, etc.

I would be surprised if nobody has raised this as an issue before. Maybe someone can point me in a direction of serious discussion of this somewhere?
