I disagree.  The "discrete subgroups" are very fluid and there is a lot of 
interaction and cross-pollination among them.  Codec in fact has 8 people 
listed as "committers."  I have never seen an example where a commons 
developer (committer or not) is unable to "do what they want...with the 
code that interests them" because of community fragmentation.  Sometimes 
people disagree and some ideas are rejected by the community, but there is 
nothing stopping any developer from getting involved in any commons 
component.  There are also *lots* more people than the [codec] committers 
who read and comment on [codec] posts.
