It tends to be a bit of a chicken and egg issue. If the spec is not
"blessed" by fdo, Qt/Gtk tend to refuse it (I would think).

I understand what you mean though. If I understand correctly, all we would
then need to do is get approval of Gtk/Qt guys. I'll ask the Qt guys but I
don't keep in touch with Gtk devs; I see there are a lot of gnome devs on
this list so if we could discuss this here, it would be great.
