At the time perhaps a decision was required because the "platform"
needed to fit into 1GB of the XO1 nand flash.

In this case (because we are discussing Sugar/GTK), the "platform" is
all of GNU/Linux.

Perhaps the "official" recommendation should stay at the design / UI /
philosophical level. After all, as you say, Sugarizer uses something
different (that is...?).
