Can anyone explain why they're against something like Ubuntu's Software Center in openSUSE?

I noticed on openFate, that a request for a software install GUI like Ubuntu’s or Linux Mint’s is getting killed. I’m curious as to why. I see this as a HUGE benefit towards promoting openSUSE and making it easier for people to use and it doesn’t stop power users from still using command-line/zypper to manage installs (or even keeping the current YAST software install interface as an “expert” interface). Can someone explain what’s so bad about this?

It’s coming (November?)…just taking longer than expected…

As far as I understood the previous discussion it is a license issue.
