The problem with this proposal is that it still means the Project is
giving a user an opinion - meaning it's not a fair selection.

But that is the main point, giving an option, rather than *just*
selecting.

To use my political analogy again, it wouldn't be a fair election if
the popular candidate were preselected on the ballot, would it? If
we intend to be fair and give both KDE and GNOME equal recongition,
this is NOT the way to go.

In politics the *election* determins the *most* popular candidate and
there is no one left. At least here and indication and explanation are
presented about "the most popular" with a clear message that *choice*
is available.

And with this explanation, the order of the DEs is not important,
imnsho.
