I got it all the points, everything make a lot of sense, but I think github is really open minded, we can take a look on atom example's. They funded the project from beginning and basically with nothing built. They trusted in the guy to build the text editor and they didn't any pressure on this project.
but, I understand all the arguments :D
(ps: this link has a podcast with the atom creator talking about the whole history :D https://changelog.com/podcast/241 )
