As a meta-issue, I just wanted to note that I support this point of view.
Developers are contributing their time. As a result, they get to choose how
and where their time is applied. And in a case like this, it is the most
feasible situation: code for a platform that you use/know, rather than
guessing at what "is out there."

[ of course, if they apply their time to coding half-completed crap, cuz
  "new" is more fun than "completing" then we just revoke their commit
  access and be done with it :-) ]

You go, Philip! :-)
