I can't think of any reason.
Historically it was because the "spins" were things "different" from
main distribution. The main distribution was the DVD, and the gnome/kde
live images were subsets of that dvd in live form. Ergo they weren't
"spins", they were just smaller live versions of the main distribution.
That was history, things have and are changing. But since we're already
past feature freeze for Fedora 13, it looks like Fedora 13 will be more
of the same. A DVD with both gnome and kde, live versions of gnome and
kde, and a number of "spins" which are different from the main
Fedora -- Freedom² is a feature!
