You can install a desktop without a spin because we allow people to do
installs from the giant pile of packages and to choose their own
adventure.

Whether you call it a "spin" or a 'product' or an 'offering', the
specific grouping that we use to make up the Fedora Desktop is the first
and foremost offering and one that has a specific mission statement.
That shouldn't prevent another spin or product or offering from having a
different, even conflicting mission statement.  All should fit within
the global Fedora /Project/ mission statement.  Contributors care about
the project mission statement, and to some degree a product or two.  End
users would care mostly about the product mission statement, maybe later
care about the project mission statement.
