I'm sure there are a couple of things to learn from this, although
I can't quite put my finger on it. A try:

 - versatility vs. user experience fragmentation?
 - ease/difficulty of moving between Emacs "subworlds"?
 - opinionated/authoritarian vs. permissive/loosey-goosey?

Does software have a pedagogical duty? If yes, which one?

I think those questions have some relationship with Gnu's core values,

Sorry for being so fuzzy.
