Not an “Org developer” -- I guess mostly Nicolas Goaziou can claim that
title at the moment with two thirds of all commits last year..

As to your questions:

No. At that moment in the discussion it wasn't clear the issue with htmlize 
(and github) has been seen fundamentally different by non-org people as opposed 
to people developing and using org-mode.

See above.
