I agree, it is perfectly fine to not spend time on researching what community
wants and judging what is the consensus (it is stressful, takes massive amount
of time and in general there is always an unhappy group and it is quite hard to
decide whatever one did it the right way and it n worse in cases when 
one also proposed/spearheaded solution that (s)he is now promoting etc etc).

But in the same way it is also perfectly fine to deploy forked iD version
or some other editor as default on the OSM homepage.
