No, and it's their right not to.  If you believe this should be a
requirement, it should be part of the license.  GIMP is a part of Red Hat
Linux, why shouldn't it be a part of the GNOME office suite?

If I recall correctly, GIMP is licnsed under the GPL, which means as long
as the developers provide the source code changes that they make, they can
make the GIMP a part of anything they damn well please.

Too many people use this license without understanding (or considering
fully) what it means...

Even if you can deceive people about a product through misleading statements,
sooner or later the product will speak for itself.
