I guess the question is whether Openmoko Inc. ever promised that the 
contents of the rootfs for the phone that they sell will be determined 
by some sort of community consensus.

If I remember correctly, they only promised to provide an open software 
platform upon which *you* can create your own personalised rootfs.  By 
including both toolkits, they have not changed anything you experience 
with respect to this promise.
