It depends. If any desktop is used by < 0.1% of openSUSE installations, we should seriously consider dropping it from the default ISOs, though
of course developers/users would be more than welcome to maintain it in
the openSUSE Build Service and make it available from there.

(Don't get hung on the 0.1% number, please. There is no hard rule, I am just using this as a plausible example. And "we" refers to the openSUSE community.)

We certainly should not drop a desktop environment which a significant
number of our users run; that would hurt the overall project badly and
I hope^Wbelieve this is nobody's intention here.
