The coordination needs to happen at some level. Either you do it at
development process level or you do it at the distribution level.

I'm a big fan of doing it upstream because:

1 it saves resources if you consider the whole ecosystem.
2 it gives clear identity and goals to the project.
3 it involves activity developers in the design and development of the platform.
4 it encourage integration with the platform, which is a big user
experience win.
