This seems to me like a fine compromise solution; OSGeo gets to do, in
some capacity, what it was originally asked for; Nat gets to optimise the
amount of shiny, visually impressive stuff that goes on the platform;
this can all be complemented by a BOF led by Frank and by space on a stall. 

That neither of those projects are "foundation projects" is not super
relevant, as 1) I guess there's some expectation that uDig and
GeoServer will join in the future and 2) it's all part of the broad
ecology / stack which the Foundation is growing in order to promote... 

good on you for effort to get this sorted out,
