Tapestry is actually a good counter example to your very argument.

The ASF exerts no pressure for people to pick Struts over Tapestry, or 
for Tapestry to merge with Struts.  Of course, if people were asked, 
they would prefer a reduced number of Java web application frameworks -- 
but this is the wrong question to ask.

Another example: Geronimo initially only supported Jetty, not the ASF's 
flagship servlet container: Tomcat.  Since then Geronimo and Tomcat have 
chosen to work together to make Tomcat an option - but to the best of my 
knowledge that wasn't imposed on anybody, and Jetty will remain an 
option for the foreseeable future.
