My current feeling is that the proposal does not sufficiently
differentiate Plasma from Workstation. What makes Plasma fundamentally
better for education and scientific users? Why would these applications
not run equivalently well on Workstation?

I'd much rather explore ways that we can allow differentiation outside
the product process - the Ubuntu approach seems to have worked well
here. The different Ubuntu desktops are built from the same archive but
have independent (but related) brands and marketing. Why would this not
work for us?
