I personally don't have any objection.

The current multi-window interface is not bad (it's actually quite 
useful in a multi-monitor environment) but it's so radically different 
from that of most other raster image editors than many people quickly 
deem it as unintuitive, too hard to use and because of it don't take the 
program seriously as a *powerful* open-source alternative to similar 
commercial programs.

An official single windowed GIMP would draw much attention from both end 
users and potentially contributing developers and would definitely be 
beneficial to the whole project in the medium to long run.
