I don't think many people care whether they are using GNU Emacs or a fork 
thereof, so I'm not sure it would change much to the current situation (people 
on MacOS can use a version of Emacs that has more features than the ones 
available on GNU/Linux).

Fully agreed; it seems clear to me that the priority is in getting more of 
these features in Emacs for GNU/Linux.

I was just pointing out that as due to the current situation, I've had people 
point out to me that my Emacs experience would be nicer on MacOS than on 
GNU/Linux (and they are right: the best Emacs experience today is not on 
GNU/Linux). These people were not running GNU Emacs, but indeed that doesn't 
matter in terms of freedom (though it does matter in terms of using GNU Emacs 
to promote the GNU project).
