I think it does none of us any favours to take this tone. LE is a big project and competing needs have to be weighed up. We should be grateful for both the LE and CE teams in all their hard work so far. If you don't like the tone of a project then don't use it. i personally use both and am grateful for both teams.
It's hard not to be annoyed when decisions and moves like this are taken.
Some of us do not want to use other projects but are forced to merely because of things like this.
