The future of openmoko as a community distribution

I'm really curious where FIC/openmoko.com wants to take the distribution after the p2 launch.
I've stated this before:
Assemble an Ångström-moko-image containing a recent gtk+/pango/cairo/glib and compare that
against the OABI and EABI moko-images. If it turns out certain parts are slower compared
to the moko-images I'll inform the people involved (most likely the cairo people and
selected gtk hackers like Federico) and try to improve those areas.
Convince FIC to merge their openmoko-distro into Ångstrom, so the community doesn't
fragment between the two distros. Since openmoko was based on Ångstrom anyway, it boils
down to branding issues, but I'm sure we can work that out."
Do you want to keep the OM distro in your own control, or will be it (partially) community
run at some point?
Regardless of that, would you want to work together with the angstrom distribution in OE
to contain the fragmentation a bit?
looking forward to hearing from you,
