Maybe because it is a the part of Gentoo was designed to holds Gentoo's assets?
Things like the logo, servers, name, ... oh and don't forget the money
- all rather unimportant things, right?

Why do you not care about the assets of Gentoo?

This is all about politics and it is a shame the developers have to
care at all about it.
It is about opinions, actions, the missing actions and there consequences.

And even worst it is about what could happen if. Some thing that you
can NOT code, test and trow away if it leads to some outcome that is
bad, ugly, catastrophic - it is to late by then.

That is exactly why I started the wiki page - to name the problems,
give info about them and even give you a head start by offering some
possible fixes.
