Such a vote, whatever the outcome, would have little effect on the GNOME project. The debate during the vote could cause a lot of harm & discord for the GNOME community. An outcome whereby GNOME is no longer a GNU project could cause a lot of harm to the free software and open source movements in general - there would be massive negative publicity. Since there is very little up-side and substantial down-side, both real and in terms of image (which is an important consideration, I think), I do not think that we should vote on this issue. Don't we have more concrete issues to address?
