I don't read his comments that way, I read "Don't partition" as in, this is
here, that is there.  I don't see the problem because both are *free* public
works, I don't know of (but could be corrected about) any examples where the
antitrust laws have been used against public charities working in the public
interest, especially in a transparent manner.

But... and this is a big but... Rob also speaks for IBM.  So I wouldn't
expect further comment from him... individually.  I don't think he's trying
to stamp out anything, but do believe this will be best decided by each
project on public lists if and when incubation has started, and a dev@ list
here is created.
